  • Endangered Species
  • We are all aware of the dire situation that our planet's endangered species are facing. We consider the causes and effects that have resulted in a global decline, not seen since the extinction of dinosaurs. We also share information about the amazing work being carried out by Australia Zoo and Wildlife Warriors to turn this situation around.
  • Animal Adaptations
  • Crocodilians have remained relatively unchanged for 100 million years. Your students will learn how the crocodile's structural and behavioural adaptations have ensured its phenomenal success as an organism. After investigating the crocodile, we throw open the discussion to your students prompting them to uncover the relationship between adaptation, environment and survival with other animals.
  • Animal Rescue
  • An exclusive insight into the remarkable work being carried out by the Australia Zoo Rescue Team as they travel far and wide to save our wildlife. Be inspired by their stories, and discover some practical tips on how you can contribute to wildlife rescue and care.

  • Most Extreme Animals
  • Crikey! Have a go at this! This exciting tour shows you the biggest, fastest, longest and most venomous creatures at Australia Zoo. This is a fun, yet educational activity for any year level, where you will meet the rulers of the animal kingdom.
  • Living in Wet and Dry Environments
  • Could you imagine a fish living up a tree; or a koala swimming around under the sea? I didn't think so! We go on a tour to check out the living and non-living elements of wet and dry environments and the differences between them. You might be quite surprised to find out just how well animals have adapted to living in these specific environmental conditions!
