Why not celebrate Schools’ Tree Day with Taronga Zoo?


In 2014 we are planting trees for invertebrates. Invertebrates, or minibeasts, the animals with no backbone make up about 99% of all animal species on planet Earth! They are vital to ecosystems and without them humans would not survive!

Find out about their characteristics, special features for survival, and role in maintaining biodiversity. Students will also have a chance to discuss the role humans play in protecting invertebrates and create essential invertebrate habitats.

Two options are available
