Purpose of this Page

Visitors to Woolwise sometimes request adding additional educational links to promote various interests, mostly about responsible management of our environment. In many cases these are school children working on projects. These links were formerly listed under the Information for Schools section of our Useful Links page under the Environment section. However, this listing is becoming larger and since it is not really about wool and sheep it has been relocated onto a separate page. However, the schools and children who use these links are invited to explore Woolwise and learn about wool, a natural and sustainable fibre.

Woolwise is an Australian based site.

Environmental management in Australia is an activity of Federal and State Government agencies.
