LegacyLIVE shines a light on our Legacy Species, which are 10 critical species that in 2016, Taronga made a special commitment to protect and conserve. Five of them are native to Australia, and five are on the brink of extinction in Sumatra- a biodiversity hotspot, right on Australia’s doorstep.
Taronga’s LegacyLIVE follows a simple 3-step model over a 3 week period:
|Step 1||Meet a Taronga Expert and a Legacy Species in their care through a fascinating Meet & Greet Video.|
|Step 2||In class, your students build their knowledge of the Legacy Species and the threats they are facing while working on a practical, real world task that our experts perform at the Zoo or out in the field.|
Each task is focused on developing a specific Working Scientifically skill in an authentic, innovative way. Students will also be able to submit questions for the Taronga Expert online.
|Step 3||Meet your Taronga Expert live and in real time via Video Conference, where they will answer a selection of interesting questions submitted by students from all over NSW and talk in more detail about their role in wildlife conservation.|
