Students meet with a Zoo educator for a 45-minute presentation plus Q&A with a focus on important conservation themes, community impacts, revegetation and rehabilitation of landscapes for threatened species. Students explore key exhibits related to South East Asia and threatened species of Indonesia.

Students investigate interconnections between tropical deforestation, threatened species, food production and consumption; analysing environmental, economic and social factors. The inquiry emphasises practical actions people can take to make a positive impact for conservation.

Key inquiry questions

  • What are the causes and consequences of tropical rainforest deforestation in Sumatra Indonesia?
  • What are the future implications of continued deforestation?
  • How do food choices by Australian consumers impact tropical rainforests in Indonesia, and what actions are people taking to manage these impacts?

Maximum class size: 33 (up to 3 sessions per day)

Combine this learning experience with a self-directed learning activity on Biomes and food security.
