Last week I had the unique opportunity to interview Rick Schwartz, San Diego Zoo Ambassador. As a non-profit organization focused on conservation and protecting endangered species, he spoke about the new Conrad Prebys Australian Outback exhibit (opened on Memorial Day) as well as about animal conservation, endangered species, and how zoos are a fantastic activity for kids of all ages.
During our chat, I asked him about the new exhibit where he told me about it includes Aussie animals such as colorful birds, Tasmanian devils, wombats, koalas, wallabies, kookaburras, cockatoos, and much more! A great experience for children, this new exhibit provides them with an educational experience as they will get to learn more about Australian forests and wildlife as well as the chance for the kids to take pictures sitting in a koala tree.
The zoo has also recreated the environment of an Australian experience with Koala crossing signs, an eucalyptus grove, and beautiful aboriginal-style totems.
In addition to this cool new exhibit, families can also experience exciting educational attractions like Africa Rocks, Lost Forest, the Elephant Odyssey and much more that is also part of the wonderful experience.
For an educational and fun experience for the entire family, the San Diego Zoo is a great destination where kids will be incredibly engaged, memorized and have the chance to learn about the magical world of animal education.
