The Zoos’ Aboriginal Education Officers have developed a number of excellent Aboriginal education programs. These programs have been created in partnership with local Aboriginal communities and broadly aim to increase knowledge about Aboriginal culture and provide opportunities and support for Aboriginal students. Your students will discover ancient Australia as they journey through 60,000 years of history.
The Burbangana Zoo Awareness Program is a joint initiative run by Taronga Zoo and the NSW Department of Family and Community Services – Community Services that gives young people in care the opportunity to engage in activities in and around the Zoo.
Animals of the Dreaming is an exciting one hour program combining two fascinating aspects of Australia – native animals and Dreamtime stories.
The Taronga Training Institute offers indigenous students the opportunity to benefit from a scholarship and work towards a Certificate II in Animal Studies.
