VCE GEOGRAPHY UNIT 2

TOURISM: ISSUES AND CHALLENGES

ECOTOURISM AT MOONLIT SANCTUARY

Moonlit Sanctuary is an award-winning Australian Wildlife Park, born from a dream to conserve and celebrate native fauna.

Our successful breeding programs and the education we offer to both students and visitors are making this dream a reality. We have been the grateful recipients of Ecotourism and Sustainability awards which recognise our efforts toward these goals, while also maintaining sustainable practices.

EXCURSION

This Geography excursion focuses on the topics of Eco-tourism and Sustainability at the site, and how we manage and mitigate the impacts of tourism.

In the program, we run a 1 hr tour to learn the history of the park, see our breeding programs, observe, and discuss the environmental value of the site, and how this has been improved, rather than degraded over time.

Students will also experience a reptile encounter and discuss our role in environmental education.

The program also includes time to take a self-guided tour of our award-winning Wallaby Walk to meet free-roaming Kangaroos and Wallabies.
