 6. Wildlife in my Backyard Project

The first group has finished the pilot project! Congratulations to the students and teacher Amber McCook of the Belair Primary school, NSW! Wildlife in my Backyard Pilot Project began last year to encourage young students from different cultural backgrounds to become behaviour scientists, like Jane Goodall, in their very own backyard. We now look forward to the remaining groups that signed up to follow. The pilot project will help to refine the material for the Jane Goodall’s ‘Partnership in Understanding’ program. To enquire, please email Tanja Straker.
