Jaw-dropping animated video on overfishing… It’s time for change! Despite an increased awareness of overfishing, the majority of people still know very little about the scale of the destruction being wrought on the oceans. This film presents an unquestionable case for why overfishing needs to end and shows that there is still an opportunity for change.

Teaching Primary Geography for Australian Schools Teaching Primary Geography for Australian Schools helps to develop your knowledge and understanding of Early Years and Primary geography and of their teaching. It discusses the nature of geography and geographical knowledge and understanding, and links this with everyday life, in particular, with children’s environmental and geographical experiences, a thread running throughout the book. Key aspects of Early Years and Primary geography are covered, including the core ideas in the subject, and understanding places and environmental sustainability. It considers inquiry approaches to teaching and learning geography, learning outside the classroom through fieldwork, the geographical skills children need, such as map work and visual skills, world knowledge and global issues, citizenship and cross-curricular approaches.
Jervis Bay images (NLA) Picture Australia has been absorbed into Trove. It was originally launched in September 2000, and at that time, was a unique and ground breaking service, bringing together digitised images from cultural heritage collections around Australia for not only all Australians to see but also the world. Contemporary images were sourced from Flickr via a series of Groups, which ensured individual contributions to Picture Australia were included in the snapshot of Australiana. We will continue with this tradition using the Trove: Australia in Pictures Group.
