Adelaide and Monarto Zoo Research Project Application 2018
The application process has closed for 2018
Adelaide and Monarto Zoo are popular places for SACE Research Project themes. To ensure that Zoo Learning can provide students with timely access to Zoo staff and inside information for SACE Research Project interviews, all students must complete the application process below. We will only consider applications submitted using the specific form below.
Zoos SA provides students with support in gathering primary research. Primary research is new research, carried out to answer specific issues or questions. There are two types of primary research that we support:
- Interviews – face to face (visit the Zoo) or phone interviews or
- Questionnaire/survey (to one staff member) – Must be web-based (on-line, eg Survey Monkey). Extended written responses will not be provided.
If you wish to enter the Zoo multiple times to undertake animal observation or other research you will be provided with one free entry into the Zoo and then be charged a discount rate of $8 per entry after that. We will negotiate this with you if your application is successful.
All successful applicants receive one free entry into the Zoo at an agreed time for a face to face interview.
