Australian Outback Adventure “Mob Squad"

Kangaroos, wallabies and emus call the Australian Outback Adventure home. In this popular Detroit Zoo attraction, guests are able to walk through the habitat and get a closer view of the animals. Volunteers called the "Mob Squad" interact with visitors along the winding pathway inside the habitat. Volunteers are critical to this experience and the habitat cannot be opened without a team of volunteers. See Application Packet for full description (PDF).
