We are a mobile environmental education program from Australia, having been in operation for 20 years...... we use Live reptiles and Hands On interaction to bring primary and secondary students to an experience which develops their understanding and appreciation of certain themes. For example, in 2010 we explored the theme of BIODIVERSITY.

In 2011 we are exploring the concept of how Living Things React to Chemistry - ie . how chemical reactions within the body of living things form the basis of body processes of everyday life from waking, to eating, digesting food, mating etc. This would be explored using native australian reptiles and related to survival in their environment.

Any comments, ideas, suggestions would be gratefully received. thank you. yanina prager
