A Visitors Guide to Dawlish Warren

This is the final homework for the Coastal Zone unit.

Your task is to create a visitor’s guide to Dawlish Warren. 

The aim is to make sure that you can describe the habitats of Dawlish Warren and the plants and animals that live there. You also need to be able to explain how  Dawlish Warren is conserved and managed sustainably.

I have included links to various information sources. Here is a template for you to download and use if you wish. 

Resources

The map you drew in the lesson will be useful. You could label a Google Maps screenshot with information about the different habitats at Dawlish Warren.

Look at these 360 panoramas to see what Dawlish Warren looks like. You can make screenshots to use in your work.

Use Google Maps / StreetView / Earth to create screen shots of as many different aspects of the scheme as you can. Add labels to describe the features and explain how they work. Either print your work or better, upload to your Posterous.

Would you prefer it as a Google Presentation or PowerPoint?
