Zoos SA is a charitable society dedicated to conservation with a mission to save species from extinction and to connect people with nature. Zoos SA has two zoos – Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Zoo.
Adelaide Zoo works collaboratively with the Department for Education and Child Development to design and implement programs that connect people with nature by informing, empowering and inspiring people to take action for conservation.
Adelaide Zoo offers self-facilitated and Zoo staff facilitated programs are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and SA Teaching for Effective Learning (TfEL). Learning programs reflect ‘big’ educational ideas around conservation and sustainability with an emphasis on youth voice and agency. The programs incorporate action-based learning and inquiry methodologies.
