Biodiversity Week 2021

Biodiversity is AWESOME! From mini-beasts to mighty trees, It’s magical, mysterious and magnificent. And it affects and makes possible all parts of our lives.

This Live Lesson is a morning of live workshops all about Biodiversity, with special guests from the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS), Fairtrade Schools, and Children's Author and Veterinarian Gill Lewis courtesy of the Scottish Book Trust


Primary Schools

Meet the wolves living at Highland Wildlife Park and learn about what caused Wolves to become extinct in Scotland, what Pine Hoverflies and Wolves have in common, how powerful words are and how they help us look after nature, and how choosing Fairtrade makes a huge difference.


  • Workshop 1: What is biodiversity and why every species counts. Looking at some of the most endangered animals in Scotland. - Royal Zoological Society of Scotland
  • Workshop 2: Did you know that words are powerful and books are fierce and dangerous beasts that can also help us connect and look after nature? - Author Gill Lewis courtesy of Scottish Book Trust
  • Workshop 3: How Fairtrade is not just important for communities but for habitats too, and how we can all be guardians of the rainforests by supporting them. - Fairtrade Schools
