The Wollemi Pine

Today’s young people in schools will become tomorrow’s creative innovators, devising lifestyle solutions that help cut global carbon emissions to zero by 2050.

At the beginning of a new decade, we have started experimenting with using heritage collections and linked resources on The Earth Museum to support classroom-based learning about climate change.

Thanks to Gosport and Fareham Multi-Academy Trust teachers and year 7 students for helping us on this journey during January, and we are looking forward to our continued working partnership.

Understandably, the students were interested in hearing more about recent events in Australia. Our story this week is about the Wollemi Pine, a rare survivor in the wild from the age of dinosaurs; saved recently from destruction by fire through the swift action and bravery of firefighters.
