Life is a mixed bag! Biodiversity (biological diversity) refers to the incredible variety within, and between, all life species: animals, plants, right down to micro-organisms. In this Eco-Schools theme students aim to discover, understand and enhance their local environment through identifying local inhabitants/species and conserving their homes. This might be in the form of creating a native plant, bush tucker garden to rejuvenate a local Australian ecosystem or ensuring diversity of flowers for bee populations. This theme offers students a chance to engage first hand with the natural environment and consider the impact our lifestyle choices and purchases have on the natural environment.
