Micro World: Build your own ecosystem
Join us to create your own mini ecosystem, a mesocosm terrarium, and learn about how the zoo controls micro climates to keep environments suitable for animals and plants.
Participants will get their own workstation with all the materials needed.
You’ll be led by the Adelaide Zoo team to create while hearing about how we look after species that live in specialised environments like the Yellow Seahorse, the Magnificent Tree Frog or the Rough Scaled Python. As you build the layers, you’ll get an understanding of how environmental changes affect ecosystems.
Bookings essential, places are limited.
