EVERYTHING TO KNOW ABOUT THE FORUM’S NEW ECO ATTRACTION

Critters Conservation Centre at Mandurah Forum will officially launch to the public on Saturday 13 July, during Western Australia’s winter school holidays, with discounted $2 general entry.

The engaging, exciting and educational experience will encourage an awareness of the environment, and Western Australia’s unique flora and fauna, through a captivating program of activities for young, budding conservationists.

Sessions include:
• All Abilities sessions – For members of the community of all abilities and ages with reduced noise and smaller groups;
• Little Critter sessions – For those aged 0-5 introducing them to using their senses to learn about critters and the environment;
• Junior Critter Conservationist Club – For kids aged 6-12, a four-week program learning about different groups of critters each week;
• Critters for Curriculum – For school excursions and student learning;
• Critter Presenter for a Day – For ages 13-17, a one-on-one mentoring program for those with special wildlife interests;
• Critter Crazy Parties – For all ages and abilities, birthday parties, team building, Christmas parties and more. Small group experience and close-up wildlife education;
• Critter Childcare sessions – For kids aged 6-12, an hour and a half, small group sessions where parents and guardians can drop their kids off while they shop or dine in-centre; and
• General Entry – For all ages. General entry to see the critters and meet the wildlife experts for interactive education about WA’s flora and fauna.

Session lengths will vary from self-paced general entry visits to full-day excursions for school groups, with most sessions being one-hour long. Group sizes will also vary from 15-30 participants dependent on the session type. Mandurah Forum Centre Manager Jacqueline McKenzie said the Critters Conservation Centre would offer a unique experience for the community to come together.

“We have such a diverse and unique environment here in Western Australia and we look forward to inspiring families across the Perth, Peel and south-west regions to really treasure what we have on our doorstep,” Ms McKenzie said.

“With the Winter weather this school holidays, we are pleased to be able to offer a hands-on nature-based environmental experience in a comfortable, indoor space.”

Mandurah Forum is the heart of the south – a modern community hub where the whole family can shop, eat, play and socialise. The shopping centre is located less than an hour from Perth and offers an extensive variety of shopping, food and beverage and entertainment options for visitors, including the much-anticipated Critters Conservation Centre.

Those travelling more than 40km from their home to Mandurah Forum are also eligible for the centre’s Tourist Ticket, available at the Customer Service Desk, which includes discounts at retailers and food outlets.
