Distance Learning *NEW*
Bookings for 2017 - 2018 open
Ever wish you could bring your school group to the zoo but run into barriers like distance, class size, budget or mobility? Well here’s your chance to bring the zoo to your classroom! Through the magic of Skype, we now offer distance learning programs, bringing the zoo to you. Adaptable to the ages and grade level of your students, we are pleased to offer three exciting programs on Penguins, Gorillas or Swift Foxes. Looking for a different topic? We can work with you to customise a progrm to meet your specific requirements.
To prepare your class and stimulate student inquiry, programs include species and behavioural information and footage of the chosen animals, made available to you prior to your program. Students are encouraged to then craft and send in their own questions for our educators to answer, while using biofacts (animal artifacts such as skulls and pelts) as well as props to further bring the experience to life.
Despite their size, Komodo dragons can run 18 - 19 kph (11 - 12 mph) in short bursts.
