At The Byron Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, we combine education, conservation and entertainment in an interactive learning environment for school groups from Kindergarten to year 6. Our hands-on programs allow students to explore their curiosity and most importantly enjoy the experience of learning about Australian native wildlife, the environment they live in, and how we, the community, can be involved and take ownership of protecting their environment sustainably and ethically.

Additionally, our aim is to bring awareness to the importance of respecting our natural world alongside the community, by creating experiences that enable visitors to leave feeling fulfilled, and having a newfound enjoyment of what Australia’s natural flora and fauna have to offer.

As an education facility, our aim is to bring awareness and knowledge to students of all ages to help them understand this imperative conservation message. With updated Sanctuary education programs that align with the NSW Syllabus and Australian Curriculum, our goal is to assist teachers and schools in meeting their learning outcomes in an immersive and memorable environment where everyone, including our natural world, benefit.

Through interactive education programs, we:

  • Provide education that targets specific curriculum outcomes to complement annual teaching plans
  • Increase students’ understanding of prevalent environmental issues
  • Provide opportunities for students to relate their science-based learning with up-close wildlife encounters that engage and inspire to bring awareness and positive change to the way we view and care for the environment we live in
  • Encourage students to develop, implement and evaluate strategies for improving their local environment and habitats
  • Provide a first-class interactive educational experience in a fun, safe environment.

Educating students from a young age about our natural world and how we can protect and respect it is imperative to the sustainability of our planet, ensuring future generations continue to enjoy our incredible world.

 

Education Programs can be booked directly on our website, or give us a call to reserve a date for your school.
