Welcome to Perth Zoo

Why are humans classified as primates? Explore the evolutionary trends within the primate order and the traits of early Hominins.

Overview

In this experience students examine why humans are classified as ‘primates’ and the evolutionary trends within this
order. Comparative anatomy, physiology and behaviour are used to identify the similarities and differences between the Hominidae (Great Ape) family and the traits of early Hominins are explored. Students take part in an interactive presentation, incorporating audio visual elements and biological artefacts. This session takes place in one of our indoor education experience areas.

This experience is available onsite at Perth Zoo and online.
