GAME IN TRANSIT: These words are stamped on all Zoos SA rhino crates during transport, a sign that precious cargo is on board.
Come & join author  and rhino carer Geoff Brooks, one of Monarto Zoo's longest serving employees who has been involved in the zoo's rhino program since the arrival of the first magnificent animal in 2000. Geoff will talk about his book, Game in Transit, a history of the rhino in South Australia.

Be amazed by polargraph artist Ben Clarke, as he demonstrates his drawing robot recreating famous artwork 'Durer's Rhinoceros', a woodcut executed by German painter and printmaker Albrecht Durer in 1515. Following Geoff's talk, families can also enjoy helping to create a Lego wildlife park and crafting a wild animal mask.
