Education at Zoodoo

Are you looking for a field trip experience for your students?

Just 30 minutes from Hobart, Zoodoo Zoo is known for its unique hands-on approach to educational experiences. Zoodoo is working collaboratively with education experts to expand and improve its school programs so that teachers and parents can be sure that their children are receiving the best learning opportunities possible.

Our education program is designed to encourage young people to reflect on the significance of biodiversity, animal welfare, conservation, and sustainability and how these understandings contribute to protecting the world we share with animals.
