Protected Areas of the ACT 2018

From the 29th November to the 6th of December 2018, six teachers from around Australia will travel to various protected areas in the ACT, including Namadgi National Park and Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.

They will be working as reserach assistants to discover new species and uncover important information that can help scientists and land managers protect local and national biodiversity for generations to come.
