Join Taronga Zoo in a videoconference demonstrating tips and techniques for keeping animals such as reptiles in the classroom.
Animals in the classroom provide fantastic experiences for students and they are valuable teaching and learning tools. With that comes a lot of responsibility and animal welfare is very important.
There are mandatory requirements relating to the keeping of any animals in schools and specific requirements for the keeping of native animals.
Taronga Zoo has partnered with the NSW Department of Education and Communities’ Keeping Reptiles in Schools program to assist teachers and their students in their awareness about these requirements and to give specific advice and assistance on how to effectively care for reptiles and invertebrates in your classroom.
Available species, selecting, licensing, handling health, feeding, record keeping and safety are all aspects covered during this video conference.
Live animals featured include lizards, snakes, turtles, spiders and phasmids.
