Zoo Tycoons

Beat the ticking timer as you travel across Africa, Asia, Australia and Amazonia – the various parts of Perth Zoo – to be the first to complete the Zoo Tycoon’s Challenge Trail.

Go on safari to discover how cooperative team-work is critical to the survival of a variety of African species. Journey through an Asian rainforest and see how adaptability and flexibility helps jungle species exist. Go walkabout with some Australian animal icons to see how they utilise their strengths to survive.

Through this organised but informal expedition across the Zoo, teams are encouraged to think about what good teamwork is, their individual skills and how their own teams work. It is a fun and fit way to enjoy the Zoo’s expansive grounds and observe the survival traits evolved by a range of zoo animals.

So, put your guests in teams, set a timeframe and get your participants thinking about good teamwork.
