  • learn how we look after Zoo animals
  • help us to care for Zoo animals by participating in some exciting keeper duties
  • explore the Zoo with our staff
  • meet some of our most treasured animals
  • play games
  • make a craft to take home
  • learn how you can make your garden more fauna friendly

Please note: specific animal encounters cannot be confirmed at the time of booking as they are subject to change.

Keeper Kids Themes

Scratch’n’Sniff

Smell is an important way that animals find food as well as communicate and just like humans, some smells are preferred over others! Learn about the smells Zoo animals love and how the keepers use smell to enrich the animals’ lives.

Roar’n’Snore

Animals make a range of noises to communicate and love to sleep in a variety of comfortable and not so comfortable places! Can you recognise who sleeps where and what animal makes that noise?

Jump’n’Swing

Some animals swim, some fly, some jump and some swing. Moving around is important to stay healthy, find food and avoid being eaten. Learn all about how the smallest and the biggest animals get around.

Puggles’n’Pups

Baby animals are the cutest but not all of them look like the animals they grow up to be! Which animal has a baby called a puggle? Which animals have babies called pups? Find out all about how we care for animal babies and the animals they become.

Do Your Part

Saving Wildlife doesn’t have to mean volunteering in a sanctuary or heading out on an anti-poaching patrol or auditing penguins on an ice-flow…or even running a zoo! There is no shortage of things you can do every single day from your living room, car or phone to help make a difference.

Animal Adoptions

Annual animal adoption is a fun and rewarding way to support Perth Zoo’s vital breeding and conservation programs, while creating a lifetime connection with your favourite species!
