- Help fight extinction
Did you know that native grasslands are the most endangered ecosystem in Victoria?
The reality is that less than one per cent of original grasslands remains in Victoria.
Students will be encouraged to make observations that will help them to understand the vital interconnections between the living and non-living things within an ecosystem. They will then meet some of the unique animals native to grassland areas, discuss present threats and importantly; collaborate on ideas for the improvement and protection of grassland ecosystems.
