Support the new A-level curriculum and motivate your students with an inspiring visit to Wild Place Project. Our Key Stage 2, 3 or 4 sessions can also be adapted for post-16 students.
This double-length session allows students to carry out environmental sampling techniques including belt transects, and terrestrial and aquatic invertebrate sampling. Data collected may be analysed after the visit to calculate species richness, diversity indices and compare results to secondary data. Students may draw conclusions on biodiversity and the factors affecting distribution in contrasting and adjacent areas.
Double-length session: Students study invertebrates in contrasting habitats, both terrestrial and aquatic, and identify and classify what they find. The focus may be on habitats, food webs, adaptation or classification. Available April-July.
To Zoo or Not to Zoo?
In our Madagascan village, students discuss the ethics and roles of zoos in the context of in situ and ex situ conservation. They also meet exotic invertebrate species and assess Wild Place on its animal welfare standards.
Using Madagascar as a case-study, students explore the unique biodiversity of the world’s fourth largest island and explore issues relating to deforestation. The session may include an immersive trail through a Madagascan village and a hands-on encounter with Giant Hissing Cockroaches.
