Lots of content was covered ... shorter activities that were well suited to the skills for the HSC. The different sessions kept students engaged. Stage 6 Biology teacher, 2019, Sydney CBD

Biological Diversity Study Days

This engaging full day Stage 6 Biology program has been developed by the Australian Museum, Taronga Zoo, the Royal Botanic Garden & Domain Trust and the North Coast Regional Botanic Garden.

Students will examine fossils, specimens, live animals and plants to understand biological diversity by explaining the relationships between a range of organisms in terms of specialisation for selected habitats and evolution of species.

To ensure the well-being of our staff, volunteers, visitors and supporters, the Australian Museum is working closely with the NSW Government to respond to COVID-19. As a public health precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the wider community, the Australian Museum has decided to cancel all education programs until 30 June 2020. We have been in touch with all booked groups that are affected by this cancellation.
