Geography inquiry: Biomes and food security

This Australian Curriculum based Geography inquiry provides an approach to investigate geographical key ideas such as interconnection, environment, sustainability and change. Students meet 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.

Investigate interconnections between tropical deforestation, threatened species, food production and consumption; analysing environmental, economic and social factors. The inquiry covers threats to species in South-East Asian tropical rainforests, how food choices impact on biomes and practical actions people can take to make a positive impact for conservation.
