Year 9 Science Ecology night time field watching excursion

27 November 2020

Stanley Tang took his Year 9 students on a night excursion at Middle Cove this week. Students were able to explore the nocturnal animals at Glenaeon and our surrounding areas. Using torch lights to search for animals in the bush, they also set up an ultraviolet-lit trap to attract insects for observation. Students learned about the processes of scientific bird banding and had the opportunity to handle wild birds - even a tawny frog mouthed owl stopped by! Dr Stanley Tang is an ornithologist and teaches high school Biology and Science at Glenaeon. He brings a wealth of experience, and a depth of ecological understanding to students in the high school science programs.
