The Werribee Primary School BEST (environment student team) was invited to celebrate National Threatened Species Day at the Werribee Open Range Zoo on Wednesday September 4, as part of the Wyndham City Sustainability Festival Schools Day. This was a whole day event, where the children raised awareness about the Eastern Barred Bandicoot which is on the verge of extinction.
We were asked to create a Love for your Local project to develop an awareness of the plight of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot. As seen at assembly on Monday, we performed a Quiz show and a Rap.
I’m an EBB, you can’t touch me
Because of the feral proof fence at the Werribee Z
I’m an EBB, I have a short pregnancy
It’s only 12 and a half days before you see a baby B
I’m an EBB, I want a feed
I like insects for breakfast, lunch and tea
I’m an EBB, you can’t find me
Because foxes and cats are eating me
I’m an EBB, can you save me
I’m nearly extinct, I only live in captivity
I’m an EBB, I’d like to be free
Can you help to rescue me?
