1 Phillip Island Nature Park Education programs Based on the VELS curriculum

2 The Phillip Island Nature Park Education Department mission is: to develop a greater understanding of the natural environment through exploration, investigation and hands-on activities. Phillip Island Nature Park is a self-funding funding organisation dedicated to the conservation of Phillip island s s wildlife and natural features.
