Become a Fighting Extinction School
The Fighting Extinction Schools program provides teachers with the support that they need to build their own curriculum-linked wildlife conservation projects with their students.
What is a Fighting Extinction School?
A Fighting Extinction School has engaged children, students, and teachers in real-world learning by taking action for wildlife. You can become a Fighting Extinction School by completing a project and sharing it with Zoos Victoria online. Fighting Extinction Schools will get the opportunity to celebrate their student’s achievements at the Showcase with Zoos Victoria.
We know that creating a curriculum-linked wildlife conservation project is not a simple task. For this reason, we offer a range of support to become a Fighting Extinction School.
- Build a Project page with a variety of ideas and resources
- Excursions and programs all with easy-to-use teaching guides
- Animal Teaching Resources
- Teacher Professional Development
- Teacher Mentoring Program
- Online communities
- School case studies
