The Iconic Species in Schools project will investigate and quantify the environmental and cultural benefits of reconnecting children with Australia’s unique biodiversity and cultural heritage. The project will use activities including habitat provision, active learning and play to deliver conservation messages to children and expose them to Indigenous culture and heritage. The research is expected to also offer enhanced social and personal benefits associated with exposure to nature, and educational benefits from innovative exposure to and engagement with STEM.
