Course Description

This program encourages students to develop an understanding of wildlife conservation and ways in which they can actively contribute to conserving Australia’s native flora and fauna. Through investigative activities and up-close animal encounters, students will engage in finding solutions to global issues such as wildlife conservation and shaping sustainable futures. In this program, students will discuss current threatening processes and investigate sustainable solutions to mitigate these threats. This program will emphasise how scientific knowledge can be used to develop and evaluate projected economic, social, and environmental impacts and how to design action for sustainability. Students will gain an understanding of wildlife preservation and how they can protect animals, plants and their habitats, ensuring that the future generations can enjoy our natural world and the incredible species that live within it.

Course Details

  • BIO11/12-6 solves scientific problems using primary  and secondary data, critical thinking skills and scientific processes
  • BIO11/12-7 communicates scientific understanding using suitable language and terminology for a specific audience or purpose
  • BIO11-10 describes biological diversity by explaining the relationships between a range of organisms in terms of specialisation for selected habitats and evolution of species
  • BIO11-11 analyses ecosystem dynamics and the interrelationships of organisms within the ecosystem
  • Scientific knowledge can enable scientists to offer valid explanations and make reliable predictions (ACSBL013)
  • Relationships and interactions between species in ecosystems include predation, competition, symbiosis and disease (ACSBL020)
  • In addition to biotic factors, abiotic factors including climate and substrate can be used to describe and classify environments (ACSBL021)
  • Scientific knowledge can be used to develop and evaluate projected economic, social and environmental impacts and to design action for sustainability (ACSBL014)
  • Human activities (for example, over-exploitation, habitat destruction, monocultures, pollution) can reduce biodiversity and can impact on the magnitude, duration and speed of ecosystem change (ACSBL028)
