Go on a nature scavenger hunt

Celebrate National Biodiversity Month

Activity time: 30 - 60 minutes

Australia is one of the most environmentally diverse places in the world.  

Plants, animals, weather and the landscape work together to form a bubble of life. This is called an ecosystem. Biodiversity means that there are lots of different plants, animals and bacteria. This variety keeps ecosystems strong and healthy. 

Go on a scavenger hunt with a grown up to find as many different plants and wildlife as you can. Download our scavenger hunt and see how many items you can find.
