Love your Locals: Victorian Grasslands, OBPs and EBBs (Year 5 - 8)


Wednesday 26 November

Student webinar

Zoos Victoria is offering free student webinars. While not a tour of the zoo, you will have an expert educator working remotely to talk directly to you.

Werribee Open Range Zoo sits within some of the last remaining native grassland in Victoria. A number of species call this unique habitat home including the threatened Orange-bellied Parrott and the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. Meet experts and learn all about these amazing local species and find out what you can do to help them thrive.

This student webinar links with the Victorian Curriculum Levels 5-8: Science.

Students will:

  • Connect with experts to learn about critically endangered species
  • Learn about Victoria’s most endangered grassland ecosystem and what has caused change over time
  • Learn about two of our critically endangered Victorian species- the Eastern Barred Bandicoot and the Orange-bellied Parrot and what we’re doing to help
  • Get a chance to ask questions and interact with zoo educators and keepers
