School incursions

Our new incursion brings live birds and mammals into the classroom. Meet creatures like a possum, black cockatoo, woylie, kestrel or tawny frogmouth. We captivate and educate with a unique opportunity to see, touch and learn.

Supporting the Australian National Curriculum, each session is tailored to the target your age group and can be adapted to a range of topics. Each and every student is offered the opportunity to get closer to nature and we learn together by looking, touching and holding native mammals and birds.

This program teaches conservation, care and awareness whilst helping fund the NAR charity. Students will have the opportunity to learn about:

  • Our native wildlife
  • How to help them
  • What not to feed them
  • What to do if you find a baby bird or an injured bandicoot
  • How to be a responsible pet owner

With fun facts and the opportunity to get close to native Australian birds and mammals in your classroom, this incursion is always a winner. Your class will also get the chance to examine an amazing range of natural artefacts including touching and learning about feathers and fur.  

 This incursion directly supports and funds NAR and our wildlife hospital.
