It is a hands on approach to examining the structural and behavioural adaptations of plants and animals. Students will spend the first hour developing the skills needed to paddle their sit on top kayak along Tallebudgera Creek.

The group will spend time observing and taking pictures of the adaptations developed by mangroves, sea eagles, cormorants and ibis’s. Students will disembark at David Fleay Wildlife Park for lunch.

Whilst at Fleays, students will visit three different habitats. The rainforest, desert and eucalypt forest. Students will observe and photograph the structural adaptations of animals such as the Bilby, Plains Rat, Koalas, Gliders, Southern Cassowary and the Tree Kangaroo.

Once back at school, students can use the data and photos collected to discuss the adaptations of animals observed throughout the day. Students can design their own creature with specific behavioural orstructual adaptations that will enhance their chances of survival in certain habitats.
