We make school excursions FUN!

Nurture a love of learning about our natural world at Mogo Wildlife Park

Learning about living things, and developing a respect for a wildlife on our planet is an integral part of the development of every child.

A visit to Mogo Wildlife Park could ignite a child's desire to explore our natural world, learning about various types of animals around the world, and pique their interests in flora and fauna.

The widely varying habitats that we have created for our animals at Mogo will introduce students to the importance of critical habitats to the preservation of our species.

We believe that conservation begins with educating the next generation from a young age, and that is what a Mogo Wildlife Park Excursion can do for your preschool, school, or community group.

Mogo Wildlife Park has been the go to location for junior, primary and high school students for fun school excursions over 30 years. in 2023 we worked hard to design and launch 'Educational Adventures' program, designed in consultation with school teachers inline with NSW Department of Education learning scaffolds.

The new program makes it easy for teachers, and engaging for students to learn about topics set our for Early stage 1 and Stage 1 students. Our new program doesn't just provide guidance and lesson ideas to make your Mogo Wildlife Park adventure a learning experience for science based subjects, you can maximise learning with our lesson suggestions for English, Science, Mathematics, Literacy, Ceative Arts, Geography, History, and HSIE
