School Holiday Programs in Perth

The Wildlife Guardians School Holiday programs provide an opportunity for children to engage with nature through wildlife interaction and environmental based activities.

Children have two programs specially designed for their capabilities and interests:

  • Junior Wildlife Guardians, family program for 5 – 12 year olds and a parent or guardian.
  • Bird Bonanza event for ages 10 and above.

Junior Wildlife Guardians

Junior Wildlife Guardians is a short 2 hour program focusing on nature connection through Australian Native Wildlife, providing 4 – 12 year olds an opportunity to meet and interact with black cockatoos, dingoes, kangaroos and emus. These events are run mostly outdoors around our education building in direct proximity to the interactive black cockatoo aviary where children and parents can talk to the attention loving birds. Through animal tours and activities children can learn about Australian Wildlife, conservation and get involved in our work by making animal enrichment toys and native plantings (depending on the season).

The session cost is $20 per child with parent/guardian attending free (any extra adults per family/group will need to purchase a $20 ticket as this is a junior focussed event and we’d like to promote more places for the juniors). Sessions run for two hours, see below for session dates and times for upcoming school holidays.
