On arrival in Hobart we will be met by our local World Expeditions guide and head to our accommodation for check in and a pre trip briefing. We then head to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, a small social enterprise that works tirelessly to protect animals that went extinct in other parts of Australia long ago. Among them are four marsupials that can only be found in Tasmania and nowhere else in the world - the Tasmanian devil, the eastern quoll, the Tasmanian pademelon and the Tasmanian bettong. We have the chance to get up close to some of Tasmania's much-loved locals and endangered animals. Bonorong operates Tasmania's largest 24-hour wildlife rescue service and we will join in a workshop to see behind the scenes the fantastic work being done to help and provide safety and care to injured wildlife.

Learning outcomes for students

A World Expeditions Schools adventure is a unique learning experience. Our journeys are designed to encourage thriving and positive youth development along with leaving the communities and environments where we travel in a better condition than when we arrived.
The programs are designed to enhance the following life skills that will help you grow as an individual:

• the value of working together as a cohesive team to achieve a common objective
• the ability to face mental and physical challenges
