Key Stage 3 Module 4: Sustainability and Extinction

Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1835. Students are introduced to the effects of human activity on vulnerable habitats as they examine the connections between the Galapagos wildlife Darwin would have seen and the recent impact of humans. Students consider the reasons why isolated populations are most likely to become endangered or extinct and the ways in which conservation might overcome some of the threats.
