Kit connects kids to threatened species

TODAY is National Threatened Species Day - and to celebrate, the Department of Environment and Climate Change (DECC) has released a 'Connect Kids' education kit for Coffs Coast schools.

The kit, which is aimed at connecting students to local habitats and threatened species in their neighbourhood, includes profiles on threatened species that are local to the region.

“Developed by the DECC and Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority, the primary school education kit assists schools to teach students about threatened species and the importance of habitat,” DECC spokesperson Mark Fisher said.

“The curriculum-supported education material enables kids to hear sounds of various animals and participate in activities in biodiversity, threatened species, habitat, ecological communities, threats and recovery actions.

“The kit helps the students to learn what actions they can undertake to help local threatened species and learn the environmental consequences of choices they make now and when they become adults.”

Schools can contact the Coffs Harbour DECC on 6659 8268 to obtain a copy of the kit.
