If the thought of another round of school holidays is driving you wild, why don’t you leave your little monkeys with us for the day to join our Zoo Crew!

Zoo Crew is a Perth Zoo educational adventure day for kids aged 8-13 where they have the unique opportunity to learn about what's involved in caring for the Zoo's incredible animals.

Each Zoo Crew day has a different theme but all include opportunities to:

  • meet Zoo animals up-close
  • help keepers to care for Zoo animals
  • bravely adventure into special access areas
  • learn about ways to 'Save Wildlife' and why it's so important
  • explore the Asian Rainforest, African Savannah, Australian Bush and Amazonia all in one day
  • play zoo games and solving animal challenges.

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

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!
