Since 2008, our engaging biodiversity education program has been a highlight of the school year for participating schools within Esperance and surrounding regions.
Through program, our school age participants build an understanding and appreciation of the significance of the local environment, and consequently nurture a sense of responsibility to care for our wonderful yet vulnerable ‘backyard’ for which they are the future custodians. Our program aligns with the organisational aspiration to:
Help build healthy, resilient and sustainable communities that share a strong ‘sense of place’ and accepts a shared responsibility to provide a legacy of a healthy, natural environment for future generations.
To date, the program has been delivered using fun and hands on activities, lesson ideas and resources from a variety of other education packages, adapted to suit our local environment on the South Coast. Not only is it designed to be a fun introduction to environmental awareness, it also aims to link with the national curriculum objectives, including the cross curriculum priority of sustainability.
Below is a selection of education resources developed by the program. New content is being added to this section all the time.
