This webinar is designed especially for students taking part in the Animal Classification and Adaptations Virtual Excursion program.

Zoos Victoria is offering free Virtual Excursions programs. Each excursion comes with a teaching guide, activities and a student webinar. While not a tour of the zoo, you will have an expert educator working remotely to talk directly to you.

During the Animal Classification and Adaptations webinar, a Zoo teacher will run a workshop for your students and answer their questions.
