Welcome to Perth Zoo
Due to website maintenance, all Close Encounters and Kids Programs are currently unavailable for bookings. We'll be back online shortly

Investigate structural features, behavioural responses and physiological mechanisms that help animals maintain a relatively constant internal environment.

Overview

Using the stimulus-response model, students explore the regulation of temperature, utilisation of water, production of nitrogenous waste, as well as the concentration of salts and gases. Students take part in a formal presentation, including live animal encounters and PowerPoint slides. This session takes place in one of our indoor education experience areas. 

This experience is available onsite at Perth Zoo and online.
