About

Give your students the opportunity to investigate firsthand the different life cycles 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 first-hand how living things have life cycles, and how they are identified and grouped based on their observable features. Our guided walk will showcase various exotic and native flora and fauna, giving students the chance to learn how scientific observations help people understand the effect their actions have on the environment, and how we can care for our environment to ensure the survival of living things. Every student will be engaged and enthusiastically involved in this fun and memorable program.
