Face The Challenge Conservation Crossword Competition 2017 (COMPETITION CLOSED)


Australia is lucky to have some of the most beautiful and unique creatures in the world, but sadly many are at risk of extinction! All living things – plants, animals and people rely on a clean, healthy place to live with the right habitat, food and opportunities. Every creature has a right to exist. Our challenge is to make sure they do.

Complete the crossword to discover amazing things about the web of life and the natural environment that you might not know. Learn from the organisations that work hard to protect, conserve and improve biodiversity both within Australia and across the world this September in Biodiversity Month!
