Stage 5

KOALA CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT

SCIENCE: Living Worlds – Conservation & Sustainability in ecosystems.

GEOGRAPHY:  Environmental Change & management practices

First-hand experience with Koala conservation field work and investigation! Students use mapping skills & navigational tools such as a compass, maps and GPS to attempt to locate koalas in our unique grey gum forest. They will use current field research and tracking techniques to participate in a recognised field survey of Koala, recording and mapping koala evidence they find in the field. Students will learn about symbiotic relationships, habitat, classification, unique structural adaptations and features including reproduction systems used to survive the harsh Australian climate. Students will contribute to koala habitat conservation project by planting or maintaining our onsite plantation used in captive breeding programs. They will also develop their own Koala Plan of Management (KPoM) with strategies to support Koala survival in the wild. Not only will they learn about unique koala habitat & conservation practices but also experience their habitat first-hand, climbing high into the canopy in one of our fantastic team building adventure activities, the “Leap of Faith” or “Tree Climb”.

BUSH SURVIVOR

A day of team building and collaboration to reach a common goal. With the help of our wilderness guide, students navigate their way back to camp using their bush survival kit whilst learning basic bush skills for navigation and survival. Back at base, students construct a shelter using available materials, learn the art of pitching a tent, safe campfire building and camp cooking.

 

LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE

Students work in teams to navigate their way through initiative-based tasks requiring teamwork, leadership and collaboration skills. The day is full of challenges and problem-solving adventure activities to help spark these important skills in students and prepare them for leadership.
