Catch up with some of Australia’s favourite animals! Meet live native reptiles, mammals and birds. Take a peek at some of the cutest creatures and hear stories of how they’ve adapted to a constantly changing environment. Learn the difference between native and introduced species and why biodiversity and conservation are so important to our world.

This show is part of the Sydney Science Festival celebrations for schools at the Australian Museum. Exciting discoveries and practical science will be brought to life with a unique program of hands-on activities, talks and explosive workshops, with a wide coverage of scientific fields and school curriculum links.

When you arrive at the Australian Museum you will find Elisa or one of our event coordinators (in a bright orange shirt) and our lovely volunteers (yellow shirts) waiting to greet you. Please see an event coordinator before going into the Museum for your activity.
