Biology Classroom Moves to the Zoo
On Friday 4 August, Year 12 Biology students went to the Perth Zoo to look at the evolution of primates and how sexual dimorphism has influenced the way different organisms look, and the particular adaptations they have to survive in their environment. We walked around exploring different areas of the zoo including the African savannah, the Asian rainforest and the Australian bushwalk.
On our travels we bumped into Tricia the elephant who was having her daily walk around the zoo. The highlight of the excursion was the chance to get up close with Amarnie the giraffe and get an idea of the size of these gentle giants. We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon which stirred fond memories from our childhoods.
