About

Discover the ways in which people interact with and care for places in an intimate virtual excursion with our amazing Rangers! Through the power of technology, students will be transported from their schools, bedrooms and living rooms to the grounds of Symbio Wildlife Park as they embark on an exciting and exclusive virtual adventure. Led by our experienced Rangers, students will be taken on a fully guided tour of Symbio Wildlife Park where they will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our amazing furry, scaly, and feathery friends! Students will discover a diverse range of animal habitats and learn all about the different features of environments such as wetlands, water lagoons, bushland, deserts, rainforests and beaches. Students will investigate the habitats of cold-blooded animals such as reptiles and investigate the characteristics of such environments. Similarly, students will observe monkey enclosures to learn how our rainforests and jungles are changing, and how we can care and preserve them. By the end of the day, students will be able to describe the reasons places change, and the active role of citizens in caring and preserving our natural world. Every student will be engaged and enthusiastically involved in this fun and memorable program.
