On Friday the 19th of May grades 3/4 A and G had an exciting excursion at The Royal Melbourne Zoo. All of the 3/4’s participated in a challenge called the ‘Local Legends’. The challenge was to spot five endangered animals which were the Philippines crocodile, long nosed fur seal, the Helmeted Honey Eater, the Corroboree Frog and the Lord Howe Island stick insect. We also had to come up with some ideas to try and save these animals.
My grade saw a seal show. The seals did some tricks. After the show we had to make a promise to not to use balloons but instead use bubbles. This is because some sea animals mistakenly eat balloons and became sick or even die.
Both grades had a chance to also touch a tortoise or a lizard.
We would like to thank Mr. Akin and George for organising this amazing excursion and thank all the helpers that came with us on this excursion.
