Welcome to the beginning of our eagle adventure this year.
I'm Dr Clare Hawkins and I'll be taking you on a scientific journey to learn about birds in Tasmania with my friend Dr James Pay.
You'll also find some fascinating opportunities here to think about these birds artistically and culturally - especially the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle.
At either 9 am on Thursday 11 May or 11.30 am on Monday 15 May AEST...
...join us as we kick off our 'virtual' expedition across Tasmania with a live 30 minute webinar, to introduce ourselves and our plans for 2023. James is especially interested in Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles, and together we'll explain how we can all be part of finding out more about them. I'll be reviewing progress so far with this year's Where? Where? Wedgie! surveys, which people of all ages will be doing all across Tasmania, starting on 12 May.
Recommended to run from Monday 15 May to Thursday 25 May (except Saturday and Sunday):
...discover each new day of our online virtual expedition here on the Expedition Class website... (start earlier or later if need be).
You'll find a series of brand-new, cross-curricular, FREE online education resources, developed by Art Education Australia in collaboration with the Bookend Trust. Each lesson builds on the information that James and I present in the day's short video.
At either 11.30 am on Monday 29 May AEST or 9 am on Tuesday 30 May...
...we'll top it off with another LIVE webinar 30 minute discussion that you can watch, or even take part in. You can also send us your questions and do our fun activities.
To join the two live webinars, we invite teachers to register by clicking the link below - we will subsequently email the Zoom details for you to join in.
