On Monday the 10th of October we went to the Melbourne zoo to find out more about the SOS ten. The SOS ten is ten animals that are almost becoming extinct but are being helped by the Melbourne zoo. We had to find out about one of these animals at school. I was researching about the Lord Howe Island stick insect. I discovered that some people went to Lord Howe Island and found 22 stick insect when they were thought to be extinct for 80 years. Luckily the zoo are able to successfully breed them and are now able to have over 9 000 of them living today.
I want to find out why the bandicoot isn’t in the SOS top 10? Next time I go with school I want to have a better look around and look at the different animals carefully.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO THE MELBOURNE ZOO BEFORE? COMMENT BELOW ON YOUR EXPERIENCE.
