Kids’ Corner

Hi junior scientists!

Welcome to your very own Kids Corner – filled with fun facts and cool things to do and create!

On this page you will meet some of Australia’s most weird and wonderful wildlife and learn about their habitats, favourite foods and what makes them so special.

Discover what a Gouldian Finch likes for lunch, learn where a Western Quoll sleeps during the day, and find out all about Australia’s largest burrowing animal, the Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat.

From your friends at Australian Wildlife Conservancy, we hope you enjoy learning about some of Australia’s wonderful animals and why it’s so important that we care for them!

Will you Dress Up For Wildlife?

We’re very excited to invite you to #DressUpForWildlife; our nation-wide campaign to raise awareness for Australia’s threatened species! AWC is inviting primary schools to participate in a dress-up or free-dress day on any day across the week from 5 to 9 September. Students are asked to make a gold coin donation and can come dressed as their favourite Australian animal or plant or wear free dress in support of our wildlife.

We’ve even designed a selection of printable wildlife masks to bring your dress-up dreams to life!
