Education - Return to 1616 Ecological Restoration Project

TLF ID A002754

This is a comprehensive education package based on of the world's most exciting ecological restoration projects that is happening right now in Western Australia! It features interactive virtual tours, 3D skulls, videos, real-action inquiry projects, research projects, native animal educational card games and activities, colouring in activities, curriculum aligned assessment sheets and a whole lot more! Dirk Hartog Island is Western Australia’s largest island. When discovered by Dirk Hartog in 1616, the island was in pristine condition with intact flora and fauna . Since then, weeds and introduced animals such as feral cats, feral goats and sheep have degraded the island and many of its original native animals were unable to survive these chanhes. The Return to 1616 project aims to turn back the hands of time and restore the island's vegetation and native animals to something more closely resembling that seen by Dirk Hartog and his crew. Introduced animals have been removed and native mammals are gradually being reintroduced.
