Taronga Zoo is celebrating Biodiversity Month by bringing schools a series of videoconferences focussing on reptiles and creating habitat.
Taronga Zoo is featuring amazing Australian Reptiles to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Snake and Biodiversity Month in 2013.
Students will meet a variety of live reptiles each Friday during the month: including snakes, lizards, turtles and crocodiles that live in Australia’s many different habitats. We will look at reptile characteristics, their predators and prey, their special features for survival and the role reptiles play in maintaining biodiversity. Students will also participate in discussions around the role humans play in protecting these amazing, ancient animals.
These video conference sessions will feature live animals, interviews with reptile keepers and interactive whiteboard visual display.
Sessions are targeted at S2 – S3
