Wildlife Talks for Schools and Community Groups
Did you know that Australia holds the world record for the country with the greatest number of species extinctions in the last 200 years? The more we understand the relationship between our native wildlife, its habitat and the impact we have - the better the chance of survival for Australia's unique animals.
WIRES volunteers regularly provide wildlife talks to school and community groups. If you would like to organise a WIRES representative to speak to your school, community group or organisation, please email [email protected] the details of your request including; your name, contact details, when you would like someone to speak and where.
