Kids Go Free Day at Taronga Zoo

Presented by Taronga Zoo Sydney

There are animals that need your help! Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to complete at least six conservation activities around Taronga Zoo. The Sumatran Tiger, Greater Bilby, Sun Bear and many more animals are relying on you to become a conservation change-agent to protect them from challenges such as climate change, habitat loss and poaching.

Taronga Zoo Sydney and the University of Sydney invite you to OPERATION EARTH: A Conservation Mission during the Sydney Science Festival, to celebrate National Science Week. Download your KIDS GO FREE* voucher and bring your budding conservationist to Taronga Zoo on Saturday 17 August 2019 to experience conservation science first-hand.

Mobilise the mission operatives in your family and get involved in the University of Sydney’s hands-on science challenges to learn about the conservation strategies in place to ensure a future for Earth’s magnificent wildlife. The mission is followed by exclusive behind the scenes tours of the Taronga Institute of Science & Learning science labs, where you’ll hear about key wildlife conservation science projects that are contributing to saving planet Earth.

Your ‘OPERATION EARTH: A conservation mission case-file’ is available at the Taronga Zoo Sydney entrance, and children receive FREE entry to the Zoo when accompanied by a paying adult*.

Families that participate in the University of Sydney’s activities and return a completed case-file go into the draw to WIN one of ten family passes to experience Wild Ropes at Taronga Zoo Sydney.

*One child FREE with a paying adult on presentation of the Kids Go FREE voucher downloaded via the booking link on this page. Additional children attending without an accompanying paying adult require a paid Zoo Admissions ticket.
