Fauna biology

Fauna biology
  • Duration: 270 Minutes (approx.)

Years 11 and 12

Western Australia’s native wildlife faces many threats to survival, particularly from introduced predators. Students will learn how Parks and Wildlife’s key Conservation Strategy, Western Shield, is re-establishing native animal populations through introduced predator control and fauna monitoring. In a hands-on experience, students will use real-world techniques to sample native fauna and gain an understanding of analysing population data (abundance). This skill will assist further exploration in the classroom with additional data provided from Nearer to Nature monitoring sessions.

Please Note: Fauna Biology is a 4.5hour activity starting at 10am and finishing at 2.30pm. This is to allow enough time for key messages to be presented to the students in an engaging manner without rushing through the content and hands-on experiences. If your class cannot stay until the 2.30pm finish time, you will need to complete some of the Conservation Strategy part of the workbook back in class using resources provided
