Wild research: Zoos SA’s critical animal research and how you can get involved

Did you know that when Zoos SA’s not connecting people with nature and saving species from extinction we’re actually conducting critical animal science and welfare research? Join us for a series of presentations that will demonstrate the spectrum of research undertaken at both Adelaide Zoo and Monarto Zoo before outlining how you too can get involved in projects in the wider community.

Research at the zoo can mean a number of different things: from keeping comprehensive records of our animals to enable us to make evidence-based decisions regarding their health and management through to larger pure research projects that occur on an opportunistic and sometimes collaborative basis. Hear about some of our incredibly varied research involving a number of different animals like rhinos, African Wild Dogs, Palm Cockatoos, reptiles and more. Learn about all the different methods used to collect our fascinating data and find out where the zoos’ research frameworks fit within what’s available in the wider community. Listen to experienced researchers and hear how they partner with Zoos SA across a number of specialised areas ranging from citizen science to university research. Then, find out how you can get involved in research too!

Please note, this event will be held at the Santos Conservation Centre located opposite the Adelaide Zoo main admissions gate. No admission fee is required.
