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.
The Critters Conservation Centre at Mandurah Forum will be a new, long-term addition to the centre and is the brain child of Critters Up Close founder and local wildlife warrior Michael Smith, whose passion is to inspire future generations to preserve the environment for native animals to thrive.
