WAMA will foster a vibrant education program for people of all ages and cultures, promoting appreciation of the natural world and our wildlife art heritage by:

  • Providing a world class educational resource where the classroom is the WAMA site – with its natural reserve, wetlands, botanic gardens, collections and exhibits – set in the broader context of the Gariwerd National Park
  • Using the WAMA precinct and its resources to;
    • engage all ages in experiencing the natural world and its depiction through the sciences and the arts, and hence
    • promote understanding and appreciation of Australia’s natural and social history, including;
      • Its unique flora and fauna
      • Its Indigenous history and interpretation
      • Its depiction in the arts, and
      • Our total dependence on its sustainability
  • Providing opportunities for students of the environment and wildlife arts to learn from and work with professional educators, scientists and artists
