Introduction to Australian Animals

Australia is one of 17 countries in the world which are known as mega-diverse, meaning we have a diverse range of animals found here, most of which are endemic or only found in the country. We are home to some really iconic Aussie animals such as Koalas and Kangaroos, national symbols all over the world but that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the number of species found here.

The Disappearing Act

Unfortunately since European settlement just over 200 years ago we have been seeing many species being put on the threatened and endangered list.. but why? Australia had such a big land mass and in comparison to some countries, a very small population. Humans have a part in it but the biggest issue is pest species with feral cats alone killing an estimated 75 million animals a night.. not to mention foxes, cane toads, the list goes on. Can we reverse the effects or are we heading towards another mass extinction…

The Show

This extremely popular animal incursion is an all-round show if you want to discover a variety of unique animal groups found all over the country. Explore Australia’s fauna with our interactive incursions that get your students face to face with snakes, wallabies, dingoes, owls, and crocodiles in our 1-hour Wildlife Works Incursion.

Each Animal is brought out one at a time and we talk in depth about them, they are then brought around to the students for a more personal encounter so each and every student will get to touch and hold them, and photos are welcome, take as many as you want!
