Identifying risks to natural ecosystems

Students undertake field tasks to assess the living and non-living components of a wetland ecosystem. They conduct a site survey to assess such factors as vegetation, animal life and human impacts. They then sample the macroinvertebrate community to identify and classify the aquatic mini-beasts so they can decide what the type and number of creatures tells about the health of the environment. This excursion can be tailored to the needs of Years 4- 6 or 7 – 12.
