What To Expect

Our expert and registered Native Australian Animals Handlers introduce and explain interesting facts about each of the creatures. We question how our actions impact their environment and what we can do in our own backyards to help.

Children can view the sleeping nocturnal animals in their nest boxes and may even be able to touch them. The reptiles are very friendly, however, the birds prefer to be
admired from a distance.

The Bush Babies & Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Biological Science
Bush Babies can be grouped and classified on the basis of observable features. For example; prey tend to have eyes on the sides of their head for wider vision of their predators. In contrast to prey a predators eyes are located on the front of their heads for them to best focus on a target in front of them, their prey!

The Bush Babies encounter clearly demonstrates the diverse structural features of each creature and ways in which they adapt to help them survive in their environment.

Our Native Animal Handlers explain and discuss how the growth and survival of living things are effected by the physical conditions of their environment and the importance of wildlife conservation.

Use & Influence Of Science
We believe scientific knowledge help people understand the effects of their actions and informs personal and community decisions on animal welfare.
