Zoo’s Victoria is pleased to be able to bring to you Lions on the Edge from the Werribee Zoo on Aug 7th from 2:15-3:00pm.

Lions are the peak predator in the grassland food web of Kenya however due to human competition the grassland food web they rely upon is being threatened. Join Zoo’s Vic for this online student web conference and find out how Zoos Victoria is working to provide an alternative income for communities in northern Kenya so they can rely less on livestock and increase food availability for wildlife.


What Does the Zoo do with all the Poo?

On the 15th of June Zoos Victoria is opening up their virtual doors to Victorian schools, not only that, they are linking to a book that has been shortlisted for YABBA 2017.

The book is called “What Do They Do With All The Poo From All The Animals at the Zoo?” by Anh Do & Laura Wood, and Zoos Victoria is going to help us find out on the 15th of June at 2:30.
