Young authors capture ferals on paper

The Central Tablelands & Central West Local Land Services partnered with the Invasive Animals CRC for the 2015 Feral Animals Enviro-Stories program.

This program involved schools from the Central West and Central Tablelands regions of NSW learning about feral animals that are causing problems in their local area.

There were 260 students involved from 16 schools and 93 entries received.

Central Tablelands Regional Landcare Facilitator, Liz Davis said, "This program is a great way of getting kids in touch with local issues.

All of the students are to be commended for their work, there has been some wonderful artwork and stories created."

Students from years 3 – 6 writing stories for kids in years K – 2.  Entries were written by individuals, pairs & entire classes.
