Threatened Species Week at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery - An Island Ark: The unique animals and plants of Tasmania with a focus on Tasmanian threatened species.

Tasmania, with its living cargo of plants and animals, has been a separate island for 12,000 years. The wide variety of landscapes and habitats has been protected from some of the effects of climate change, human impact and introduced species that have caused extinctions in mainland Australia. Through this program students discover Tasmania's ancient origins, unique biodiversity and the unusually high numbers of endemic animal and plant species that are present here.

Duration: 1.5 hours
Suitable for all grades
