Student web conference

Zoos Victoria is offering free student webinars. While not a tour of the zoo, you will have an expert educator working remotely to talk directly to you.

We hear a lot of doom and gloom about the state of the environment, but there are many good news stories, too. Hear from some of the people who dedicate their careers to bringing endangered animals back from the brink and learn more about what they do. 

This student web conference links to Victorian Curriculum Levels 5-8: Science, Geography, Sustainability and Ethical Capabilities.

Students will:

  • Hear from experts in species recovery about the work they do to save animals from extinction
  • Learn how STEM skills are used to address real-world conservation challenges
  • Have the chance to ask questions stemming from your curriculum focus
  • Increase positive connections with wildlife through empathy and compassion
