Digital Resources for Young Rangers
Our Education department got busy during the recent lockdowns creating digital resources for school-aged children, so they can continue learning about nature from home. Download the free pdfs or access the slides below, or head to our school programs page to book in a virtual class.
Want to find out what makes a seal swim? This easy to use resource prompts students to explore the world of our Australian fur seals through a variety of media. Students explore how seals' features make them particularly suited to their environment and how human activities are impacting their ability to survive. Once students have engaged with the resource, they will be ready to join our rangers, researchers and global community as we work together to identify population status and entanglements through the SealSpotter portal.

Design for Nature
Climate change is predicted to make Phillip Island hotter and drier so the Nature Parks, in collaboration with La Trobe University, is testing 50 artificial burrows, in five different designs, to better protect penguins during extremely hot weather. How would you design a penguin burrow to protect our feathered little friends? Through this resource, explore the challenges little penguins face in a changing climate, the concepts of passive design, and create a little penguin burrow that can extend the deadline on saving this iconic animal.
