Taronga Western Plains Zoo would love to encourage students to ride or work to school, or on the weekends with their families as it has extremely positive benefits for both health and the environment. With this in mind, we have decided to tackle the very complex issues relating to climate change by addressing one very simple behaviour change, walking or riding where possible, instead of using the car. Whether your students would like to ride for rhinos, peddle for painted dogs or cycle for Sumatran tiger, come to the only Zoo in Australia where you can ride your bike.
As part of your Zoo visit, your class will visit the Education Centre for a 45 minute workshop and learn about climate change in relation to some of our iconic native species. We will discuss the Zoo’s current conservation campaigns and how students can influence behaviour change in their families and school communities. Your students will then be able to explore the Zoo by bike. Your students will have access tobloggie cameras to use with your class so that your students are able to collect images to inspire their writing back at school. Programs will be available throughout the day. Students will need to bring hats, sunscreen, water, morning tea and lunch. Helmets and bikes will be included.
The workshops are aimed at Stage 2-4
If you are interested in this program, please contact us on 02 6881 1433 or email@example.com regarding a date.
Cost is $12.00 per student and includes entry to the Zoo. As part of the winter special you will also receive free bike hire for students valued at $15 each. Minimum group size is 20 participants.
