“For a child – or even an adult – being in the presence of a living, breathing animal, knowing the way it smells, looking into his or her eyes, and above all, sensing its “being-ness” can be a life-changing experience.” – Jane Goodall, Primatologist.

At Sydney Zoo we believe that education is a key part of a modern zoo. It promotes awareness and an affinity with animals, ensuring communities value and protect wildlife and habitats around the globe.

Sydney Zoo is a registered Covid Safe venue and we are committed to ensuring the welfare of safety visitors and staff.

Our education programs are expanding to enable us to stay connected to students and teachers via virtual lesson and incursion options into your school or centre under strict Covid Safe protocols.
