Year 11 Biology has enjoyed an excursion to the Australian Museum and Royal Botanic Gardens for the Evolution of Australian Biota Study Day. This excursion provided some outstanding learning opportunities with both extinct and extant animals and plants. The Diprotodon, an example of extinct megafauna, was a popular study choice. Taronga Zoomobile brought some other favourites for a closer look, a Ring-tailed Possum and Children’s Python.
