Youth at the Zoo (YATZ) is a program designed for students in Year 9 to Year 12 with a passion for conservation and looking towards a future working with animals and conserving wildlife. YATZ aims to inspire and develop leadership skills, promote conservation locally and globally, while providing a strong youth perspective to the Zoos SA community.

The program immerses young people in experiences relating to animal and conservation leadership skills through camps, workshops and hands-on activities.

Our mid-year 2019 YATZ intake has been completed. The next opportunity to apply will be in November/December 2019.
