Stage 5: Environmental Change and Management

Stage 5: Environmental Change and Management

Overview

Taronga's local and international conservation projects provide the perfect resource for your Environmental Change and Management investigative study. In this workshop students will develop an understanding of the causes and consequences of human-induced environmental change in Australia and Sumatra that is challenging sustainability. Students will explore worldviews influencing approaches to environmental use and management and gain an understanding of the value of a biologically rich landscape. They will evaluate responses to deforestation in both countries, propose ways individuals can contribute to sustainability, and recognise that there are differing views on how sustainability can be achieved.
