The Conservation Champions program aims to inspire and educate school-aged students about biodiversity conservation in their local area. It is a collaboration between the Biodiversity Conservation Trust (BCT) and Petaurus Education Group. The program is designed to teach students about the importance of protecting habitats, flora and fauna through a series of interactive and engaging activities. The program is free to ensure that it is accessible to all students and public or independent schools.
Using hands-on, local experiences to teach students about local biodiversity promotes critical thinking and problems solving, fosters an appreciation of the natural world, develops a sense of pride in their community and aligns with cross-curricular priorities. This program offers a unique opportunity for youth to learn about the biodiversity in their own communities and become passionate about preserving it.
The program involves a variety of activities, such as workshops, field trips, and educational materials. To get involved in the Conservation Champions program, use the contact us page.
