Second Nature Education provides a diverse range of opportunities for student groups to undertake Habitat Studies with the convenience of an incursion.
The best way to gain knowledge and experience on a habitat is to visit the habitat and undertake a field study. If you are unable to do that, our incursion options are carefully designed to be the next best thing! Incursions save time and are very cost-effective. We provide a simulated habitat study (and with some habitats, a simulated field-work experience) for almost every habitat in Australia and many habitats located abroad. If you wish to do an incursion on a habitat that is not listed below, please contact us to discuss options. For more information, please click on your habitat of interest from the list below.
If you want to go out into the field – why not contact us to discuss how we can deliver a “habitat study” as an excursion close to your school!
Second Nature Education delivers incursions on your premises. Depending on the type of incursion you wish to experience, we are able to deliver programs at most destinations within Australia, and many locations abroad. If you are located remotely, we may need to offer similar experiences to institutions around your area in order to make the experience viable (cost-effective).
If you wish to have us design and/ or deliver a completely tailored incursion program at your school, please contact us to discuss options.
