What if you had the legs like a cassowary? What if you could camouflage like a cuttlefish? Let your imagination go wild in this biological exploration of animal adaptations.

How do animals survive in the vast range of Australian environments? From the harsh conditions of the desert to the cool depths of the ocean – our native animals have become well adapted to life in Australia. In this interactive remote session, students explore the structural and behavioural adaptations of some of our coolest native flora and fauna and discover how they can survive in such environments. Using this knowledge students are challenged to design their own animal with features that allow them to survive and thrive in its environment.
