Task 5: What is threatening our Australian animals?
We need to understand the threats to each of our five focus Australian animals. This will help you decide which one is the most endangered and which one you want to try and protect!
Your teacher will divide the five animals up amongst each group. Some animals might be given to more than one group. Make sure you are given a different animal to the ones you have focused on in the previous tasks.
You should explore whether your animals are endangered and, if so, why that is the case. What changes are occurring that are affecting this animal? And who is causing these changes? Use the links below to help you get started.
Once you have completed your research, share it with the class!
