Student webinar

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. Join us to meet experts and learn all about these amazing local species and find out what you can do to help them thrive.

Register your students and join us live using Adobe Connect on a computer (hooked up to a screen or interactive whiteboard) or electronic device. You will watch a live video stream and will need sound to hear the conversation. Students will be able to type questions via a live chat box - no camera or microphone is required.

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

  • Connect with experts to learn about critically endangered species
  • Learn about Victoria’s most endangered grassland ecosystem and what has caused change over time
