Students participate in a series of hands-on activities to explore both aquatic and terrestrial environments. They investigate how these different environments provide habitats for animals.
Students will have the unique experience of going on a bushwalk along a section of the upgraded Coast track. During this walk, they'll examine how the environment is being protected from human impacts. They'll also explore ways that Aboriginal people use the environment sustainably.
