Exploring Charles Darwin’s discovery of Australia’s diverse Biota

Exploring Charles Darwin’s discovery of Australia’s diverse Biota

This full day program supports Module 3: Biological Diversity in the new 2018 NSW Biology syllabus and is held at various locations around New South Wales.

This program has been developed by the Australian Museum, the Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust and Taronga Zoo. Students will examine fossils, specimens, live animals and plants to understand biological diversity by explaining the relationships between a range of organisms in terms of specialisation for selected habitats and evolution of species.
