Term 1 Adelaide Zoo Career Awareness Day – now open for bookings

Are you passionate about wildlife and interested in a career with animals and conservation, they can join us for our next Career Awareness Day to be held on Friday 20th March 2020.

This special day gives students a chance to learn all about how they might become part of the zoo team one day.  It’s a great chance to meet staff from a range of careers at the zoo – from Zoo Keeping, Veterinarian, Vet Nursing and more, including horticulture and management.  Hear about how our staff became part of the zoo team and learn how students can get that competitive edge to land their dream job!

Career Awareness Days are open to students in Years 10, 11 and 12.
Please direct interested students to the web-link below - can you also please let Mrs Yandell know about your application.
