National Threatened Species Day is held on 7 September each year - commemorating the death of the last Tasmanian tiger at Hobart Zoo in 1936.

Students will research either the platypus or a frog species to look at issues that impact these animals and will have an opportunity to ask questions related to these issues.

This event is run in conjunction with the Museum in a Box program and includes the use of the Frogs or Platypus for a three week period.

Background information and related website will be provided before the event to assist the students in their research.


Standard Museum in a Box prices apply plus $88 per class for the video conference.
