The Feral Fix Enviro-Stories program involves schools from the Northern Agricultural Region of WA learning about the feral animals that are impacting our native wildlife, agricultural production and sensitive landscapes.

The Feral Fix program is being sponsored by Northern Agricultural Catchment Council (NACC). They will be selecting schools from their region to participate in this program. Participating schools will involve their students in activities that help them learn about the feral animals impacting their local environment – with support from NACC staff and utilising resources listed under the “Feral Fix Research” tab below.

Students involved in this program will then write and illustrate a 15-page storybook focused on the feral animal(s) they have researched. This story will be published into an A5 school reader.
