About Life Cycles Classification and Survival of Living Things at Symbio

Your students will never get a better close-up look at living things and life cycles than through a visit to Symbio Wildlife Park! Students will have the opportunity to investigate first-hand how living things have life cycles, and how they are identified and grouped based on their observable features. Our experienced Rangers will guide a walk through the exotic and native flora and fauna, giving the 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.
