Our urban environments are constantly undergoing physical change, making conditions for local wild life somewhat unpredictable.

This workshop explores some of these changes and their impacts, both positive and negative for local wild life who also happen to call these spaces home. 

Students will experience

Students will explore questions

  • Does the physical environment affect the survival of living things?
  • Who might benefit and why?

Working in small groups investigating

  • How the physical environment has changed over time 
  • The impacts these changes can have on local wildlife
  • Whether there are winners and losers. 
  • Real world solutions to help redress some of these changes.
