Act Wild is for school-age kids, teenagers, families, cool people, animal lovers and visitors to Melbourne Zoo, Healesville Sanctuary and Werribee Open Range Zoo.

Now focused around 16 animals – From Tigers, Orang-utans and Gorillas to local threatened species such as the Leadbeater’s Possum and Orange-bellied Parrot - Zoos Victoria's first iPhone and iPod Touch app helps you do your bit to help these animals in the wild.

Watch videos, record your actions, check in to our Zoos, upload your photos, or read the latest Zoo Feeds blog posts. You can also view shopping tips, find local conservation events (in Victoria, Australia only) and find out more about Zoos Victoria's conservation campaigns such as Don't Palm Us Off and Wash for Wildlife.

Act Wild: because your actions can help save wildlife!
