In this workshop students will examine the unique features of Australian and Sumatran habitats and meet some animals that depend on these environments. Students will discover the ways people value and conserve environments, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. They will learn how their everyday consumer choices impact critical environments across the globe. While in grounds, a visit to the Wild Asian Wetlands is valuable to reinforce the concepts discussed in this workshop.
