Flora and Biodiversity
Lying within one of 36 internationally recognised biodiversity hotspots, the South West Ecoregion is home to over 6,000 species of flora. Each have adapted to thrive in this environment over a very long period of time.
Complementing the unique flora of the region, the area is home to a number of species that are found nowhere else in the world. Stories of the animals of the past and the threats to our native fauna in the future provide perspective on the fragility of life on earth.
Devil’s Lair Cave is one of the most important archaeological sites on the plants, revealing that the Wadandi Nyoongar people have been living in this area for over 58,000 years. Since the arrival of the European settlers in the early 19th century, there has been some warming stories between the settlers in and the Wadandi people.
Two hundred years before the French arrived to explore the area between the Capes, the Dutch had already spotted and noted the most southwest corner of Australia. In 1931, the first settlers arrived in Augusta and over the last 85 years, many stories have come from their successes and failures of the land.
Drug and Alcohol Awareness
We have worked closely with the Local Drug Action Group to present a number of camps with local youth groups. Learning about the chemistry of the brain and the natural highs we can embrace, students can have the opportunity to openly discuss why people might choose to use alcohol and drugs.
Team Building and Leadership
What does it take to be a good leader or to be part of a strong team? We explore the ideas of effective communication and trust.
The environment can be a hostile place with very real consequences. Groups will have the chance to explore tactics and techniques to find water, water and create shelter and warmth.
