Going Ape – our upcoming Creative & Talented Program  (Tuesday 6 & Thursday 8 September)

Students will develop an understanding of Asian and African rainforests and Great Apes through a fun and interactive program of discovery. The program is delivered by a staff member who has had first hand experience living and working with Apes in Africa.

The chimpanzee that she worked with, Asega, is now living on his own island paradise with others of his kind!

“Go wild for life” World Environment Day 2016


World Environment Day, celebrated on 5 June every year, is the United Nations’ most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment. Since it began in 1974, it has grown to become a global platform for public outreach that is widely celebrated in over 100 countries.

Above all, World Environment Day is the ‘people’s day’ for doing something to take care of the Earth or become an agent of change. That ‘something’ can be focused locally, nationally or globally; it can be a solo action or involve a crowd – everyone is free to choose.

The 2016 theme is “Go wild for life – zero tolerance for the illegal wildlife trade”.

What can you do to stop the cruel illegal wildlife trade?
