Students will gain an understanding of the importance of invertebrates and other factors in an Australian ecosystem through the analysis of food webs. They will enhance their classification skills using preserved specimens. They will further develop their problem-solving and analytical skills, as well as apply previous knowledge gained, through a hands-on research investigation.

This program introduces the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Redlist classifications (endangered, least concern, extinct). Students will learn about an Endangered Victorian invertebrate (the Giant Gippsland Earthworm) and how research scientists collaborate through the extended investigation.
