Stage 3: Surviving in a Changing World

Stage 3: Surviving in a Changing World


Adaptations are remarkable features that have evolved in animals over millions of years to help them thrive in their environment. But what happens when that environment changes too rapidly? In this workshop, students will observe a range of animals’ adaptations and use stories from Taronga Zoo’s Wildlife Hospital as a case study in considering how adaptations are challenged by today's changing environments.
