Museum educator-led program

Assuming the role of a Customs Officer who visits the Australian Museum for help identifying suspect goods, students visit the Surviving Australia exhibition to gather information about Australian animals.

Using this information within our Species on the Border app, students undertake investigations and return smuggled animals to suitable habitats. The app focuses on issues involving introduced and endangered species, habitats and adaptations.
