Using Taronga’s Science Conservation projects as case studies, students will develop an understanding of the need for scientific research in identifying threatened species, assess the impact of the species decline on the wider ecosystem and contribute to species recovery through the creation of their own Threatened Species Recovery Plan.

Stage 4 Science: The Web We Weave (Ecology)

Outcomes: SC5 -14LW, SC5 - 15LW

Integrates with: GEOGRAPHY (Landforms and Landscapes)

Explore the fragile nature of ecosystems by studying a threatened Australian environment and a specific threatened species that Taronga is helping to conserve. Meet Australian animals, learn detailed examples of interactions in food-webs and hear how Taronga is contributing to species recovery plans for threatened Australian animals.

Hey Everybody! Just remember over the summer to drink plenty of water, wear plenty of sunscreen, plus your hat and sunglasses. Also, shady trees are the best to sit under☺️. Be Sun Smart and Slip! Slop! Slap!
