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!

Australian Wildlife Conservancy’s craft activities

From crosswords to costumes, we’ve got something for every junior scientist to enjoy.

Print your own wildlife Back to School labels!

The new school year is almost here and we’ve created a set of wildlife themed label stickers to decorate your books, lunch boxes, drink bottles and more!

Click the button below to download your AWC Back to School labels. You can print these straight onto standard A4 paper and apply them using clear contact paper or sticky tape. We’ve also put together some more detailed instructions if you want to print these direct onto sticker label sheets.
