Secondary School Program

The Secondary School Education package has been developed by Project Numbat to support teachers in embedding conservation education into curriculum programs. The package provides cross-curricular activities focusing on the Western Australian mammal emblem – the endangered Numbat – and other native animals.

The package is broken down into three sections covering the following topics:

• The South West of Western Australia as a Biodiversity Hotspot

• The concept of Threatened Species and Threatening Processes

• The Numbat as an example of a threatened species including:


• Details about the Numbat

• Why they are threatened – specific threatening processes

• What is being done to help – including the concept of Recovery Plans

• What you can do to help

The program is available for download from Dropbox HERE.
