Melbourne Zoo

Coastal Connections Teacher PD

During this full-day program, teachers will find out how Zoos Victoria’s Seal the Loop campaign can bring the current AusVELS geography and cross-curriculum priority of sustainability to life!

Teachers will hear from expert speakers, including Zoo keepers and researchers on the value of water for people, animals and environments. Looking further into the issue of entanglement of marine animals and its causes, teachers will have the opportunity to take the Seal the Loop campaign back into their schools and engage students with this pertinent challenge.

The program encourages teachers to implement inquiry based programs that allow students to explore the topic of water values and associated issues using 21st century learning skills.
