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 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, and rainforests. Students will investigate ways in which people interact with and care for places whilst identifying their natural and human features.
