Career awareness days

If you’re passionate about wildlife and interested in a career with animals and conservation, join us for our next Careers Day at our sister site, Adelaide Zoo.

This special full day event gives students a chance to learn all about the variety of careers that are needed to keep a zoo running. The Education team will introduce students to a range of guest speakers from animal care to horticulture, marketing and administration, as well as investigate training pathways to animal-related careers.

Open to students in Years 10, 11 and 12. We also invite Year 9 students to apply for the Term 4 program.

Recycle your old phones to help chimpanzees in the wild!

When you recycle your mobile phones at Adelaide Zoo or Monarto Safari Park, the funds generated through recycling supports on-ground work with Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary and the Jane Goodall Institute Australia.

Tacugama have over 80 Chimpanzees in their Rehabilitation Centre and run community outreach, research and alternative livelihoods programs. The Jane Goodall Institute Australia are supporting education, research and community programs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

If you would like to incorporate phone recycling as part of a school visit, mention it to our Education team when making your booking.
