The KwaZulu-Natal Museums collaborative International Biodiversity Day event with DUCT saw 40 learners participate in the initiative on Friday, 21 May 2021. The initiative was designed to celebrate and drive the importance of #biodiversity through practical educational activities that reinforce the grade 10 and 11 Life Sciences CAPs Syllabus. Learners from Ngangezwe High School, Inhlanhlayabebhuze High School and Banqobile High School were given a presentation by members of DUCT, highlighting the threats of climate change on biodiversity and how to take better care of the environment. Students were given a guided tour of the Museum, focusing on three biodiversity habitats grasslands, forests and marine. With the knowledge gained from the tour, each school was tasked with creating its own miniature habitats.
Happy International Biodiversity Day, we're part of the solution #ForNature.
