Students can be taught about issues of environment and threatened natural zones, native vegetation and native animals, and the severity of impacts from feral invasion and European settlement on the arid zone, but it is the process of being involved, in doing that creates empathy and an understanding for the need for its restoration and preservation.
Educational visits - choose from day visits or overnight
Each educational visit offers a comprehensive program of activities which can be tailored to suit individual school or group needs. The Program is designed to be hands on so that students can gain a practical insight into the restoration and pest control work undertaken on a day to day basis at the Reserve to restore populations of locally extinct and threatened native species to the arid zone. Contact the Volunteer and Community Liaison Officer for more details.
Special projects and on-going studies:
Student groups also have the opportunity to engage in on-going studies that can be directly linked into their school studies in environment and ecology via a real-life research project conducted at the Reserve. These studies are designed to be flexible to fit within individual schools programs and their capacity to visit the Reserve. They can be done on an on-going basis over a number of years involving different groups of students, or short term over an extended visit or with local schools.
