Registering to Act Wild

When you register, follow these simple guidelines...
  • Just provide your first name. We don't need your surname.
  • Choose a unique username. Use lower-case letters only or our computer says no!
  • Your username and first name will be publicly viewable. This is so that others can see the great actions you've done.
  • Choose a password that's hard for others to guess. The longer the better.
  • We'll need your e-mail address so we can activate your account.
  • After you've registered, you'll need to access your e-mail and click the activation link sent from actwild@zoo.org.au before you can login. If you can't find the e-mail, check your Junk mail folder.
  • If you're a student, use your school e-mail address if you have one and feel free to let us know your year level and school name (but this is optional).
  • Once you've registered, you're ready to rock and roll! Logged in users can comment on blog posts, record the actions you've completed, receive e-mail reminders, upload photos, ask questions and much more.

General Guidelines to Act Wild

Some easy to follow guidelines to help you Act Wild...
  • You can login with your e-mail address or your username. Easy!
  • Use appropriate language. Remember, this is a public space. Let’s keep it a civilised one!
  • There’s no need to provide too much info about yourself.
  • Make sure you only upload photos you have taken yourself.
  • This isn’t a platform for poking fun. This is a place to have fun.
  • Remember to be respectful to your friends, the zoo staff and the animals (the gorillas get cranky otherwise).
  • Get involved and visit often!
That way, you’ll know the latest and be able to make a real difference.

What We Will Do

  • If you’re active – we’ll show it! We will profile the latest and most active users.
  • We will maintain your privacy: that means never sharing your e-mail address and complying with the Australian Privacy Act (the legal bits). We will publish your username and your firstname but only to showcase your great work.
  • Give you a range of ace free stuff to help you get involved.
  • Allow you to use our content and the Kiani API under a Creative Commons license (it's cool, trust us!).
  • Occasionally contact you via the e-mail address you have provided, but should you want to opt out, we’ll make sure it is super easy for you to do that.
  • Keep you up to date on some amazing stuff happening in conservation!
