All kinds of critters will soon crawl their way into the Mandurah Forum as the shopping centre prepares to welcome the Critters Conservation Centre in July. In a Western Australian first, the centre will provide a new engaging and educational experience about local flora and fauna to encourage awareness of the environment. The long-term addition to the centre will offer a captivating program of activities for budding conservationists, young and old, including special school holiday events. The programs that will be on offer at the Critters Conservation Centre will include:
General entry – general entry for all ages to see the critters and meet the wildlife experts for interactive education.
All abilities sessions – for members of the community of all abilities and ages, with reduced noise and smaller groups.
Little Critter sessions – introducing kids aged 0-5 to use their senses to learn about critters.
Junior Critter Conservationist Club – a four-week program for kids aged 6-12, learning about different groups of critters each week.
Critters for curriculum – for school excursions.
Critter presenter for a day – a one-on-one mentoring program for teens ages 13-17 with a special interest in wildlife.
Critter crazy wildlife party – small groups of all ages for a close-up wildlife experience (team building sessions, Christmas parties etc.)
Critter childcare sessions – 1.5 hour sessions for kids aged 6-12, allowing parents and guardians to shop or dine while their children are supervised.
