Threatened Species: Wild Zoo Day – Years 4-7

The Threatened Species: Wild Zoo Day is a session related to themes in Biological sciences in the Australian Curriculum, the Cross-curriculum priorities and General capabilities. Themes explored during the session include why animals are threatened, including habitat loss, irresponsible tourism, poaching and introduced / feral species. They explore concepts of endangeredthreatened and vulnerable species in a learning environment surrounded by lion, red panda, koala and snake skins. Students investigate what actions can be taken to address issues related to threatened species with a focus on Australian and South-East Asian animals and habitats.
