Learning About Australian Animals, Habitats & Conservation

Aussie Wildlife Champions

Aussie Wildlife Champions is an educational program designed for 3-5 year old children which aims to support young children build an understanding of our unique Australian animals and habitats, as well as foundational aspects of conservation.

This exciting program contains three units that explore the unique biodiversity of 18 of Australia's most iconic animals, including the koala, green tree frog, kookaburra and more. Children will delve into each animal's physical features, habitat, lifecycle and conservation, answering questions including:

  • What does the animal look like?
  • Where does the animal live?
  • How does the animal reproduce and grow?
  • What threatens the animal’s survival and how we can help protect it?

Aussie Wildlife Champions is part of the Lifelong Learning Curriculum School Readiness program and has been developed through a partnership between the Australian Wildlife Conservancy and Affinity Education. It is exclusive to Affinity Education owned early learning centres, including Kids Academy.

Australia is one of the most important nations on Earth for biodiversity. Most of Australia’s wildlife is found nowhere else in the world, making its conservation even more important. The first step in protecting our unique animals and habitats for future generations is to raise awareness of how special they are.

Australian Wildlife Conservancy

Australian Wildlife Conservancy is a global leader in conservation, providing hope to Australian wildlife across the country. Their mission is to effectively conserve all Australian native animal species and the habitats in which they live.

By encouraging an inquisitive approach to the natural world, both Affinity Education and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy hope to inspire new and emerging generations to care for our country.
