Year 9 geographers go into the wild

Year 9 geographers go into the wild

Our Year 9 geography students relished the chance to undertake hands-on fieldwork on a Minnamurra Rainforest excursion on 12 March.

They investigated changes that have occurred to the rainforest biome over time, as part of their study of sustainable biomes.

Activities on the day included:

  • Testing of water, soil, temperature, turbidity, humidity and light intensity to understand why rainforests grow in the places they do
  • A guided walk to identify flora and fauna and their adaptations to the rainforest biome and to understand how tourists can minimise their impact
  • A talk from local experts on the uses and threats of the Minnamurra Rainforest.
