Year 12 Geographers assess biodiversity in Noosa Heads

On Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 May, the Year 12 Geography class made their way to Noosa Heads to assess how biodiversity is being impacted by tourists and residents. The trip included two excellent guest speakers, Kylie Moses from Noosa Community Biosphere and Rob Cameron from Queensland Parks and Wildlife. Together, these speakers gave first-hand information regarding the threats to biodiversity in the Noosa region as well as possible management strategies.

The field trip included a park assessment in the Noosa National Park, whereby students assessed modifications that have been made to accommodate people. Finally, assessments were made on Hastings Street to determine the impacts of a fragmented national park.

I would like to thank Mrs Wendy Bolton for accompanying me and the Year 12 Geography class on this field trip. We all had an excellent time and were able to collect the data required for our field report.
