Bayside Survivors


Flyer (pdf 978 KB)Supporting Desert Survivors

Bayside Survivors gives students a real-life environmental mystery to solve, ie the discovery of animal remains in the reserve. The students, working in groups, will be challenged to work out what animal was the victim and what animal was the villain.

The students will focus on animal adaptations of the species surviving in the Kamay Botany Bay National. They will discover clues on a trail walk seeking out animal evidence such as scratch marks, droppings, fur, feathers, bones, etc.

Students will record their route and record animal evidence observed accurately using maps, notes and the camera app on iPads during this engaging investigation.
