FE Schools Showcase Week

Be Part of the Fighting Extinction Schools Showcase Week 2020 - 23rd – 30th November

Every year Zoos Victoria hosts a very special event to showcase the amazing work of some of our Fighting Extinction Schools. 

This year we have moved online to share students’ work for wildlife and conservation across Victoria. The 2020 Showcase is bound to lift your mood and inspire hope for the future.  

The Showcase will run over one-week where you and your students will get the opportunity view schools’ videos and be inspired by their achievements, whilst interacting digitally with schools, teachers, students and Zoos Victoria.

The 2020 Fighting Extinction Schools digital showcase is live on Flipgrid between Monday 23rd of November until Monday 30th of November. 

Go online any time during the Showcase Week to see your and other schools' videos, and to see and contribute comments about yours and other schools work fighting Extinction.
