About

Observe first-hand the features and changes of living things 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 investigate how living things grow in different places and their life stages of growth. They can see what farmyard animals eat, how snakes shed their skin, and how kangaroos carry their young. By the end of the program, students will be able to describe the ways the different environments of exotic and native Australian animals provide for the needs of living things – how they survive, change, and reproduce. Every student will be engaged and enthusiastically involved in this fun and memorable program
