Healesville Sanctuary

Stage 1.

A biodiversity audit of school grounds to form the basis of the school’s biodiversity action plan.

Stage 2.

Visit Healesville Sanctuary and make use of a habitat assessment tool to determine the presence of species and the action required to encourage their return.

Stage 3.

Development of an action plan to restore and maintain habitat to meet the ecological needs of the school’s selected faunal emblem. To find out more go tohttp://www.zoo.org.au/Learning/Programs/Showcase/Biodiversity
