Course Description

Come and explore different habitats and the unique animals that call them home. In this hands-on program, students will meet animals that are considered lucky and unlucky, because their habitats are either healthy or under threat. This program inspires students to connect with native wildlife, build knowledge and develop skills that enable them to care for the natural world. Students are encouraged to select and use appropriate strategies, understanding and skills to produce creative and plausible solutions to identified problems, such as ways to improve the health of current ecosystems at risk. Wildlife encounters facilitated by our passionate wildlife experts will provide students with a deeper understanding of the habitat requirements of each species along with their threats.
