About the course

Environmental Science is the study of how humans interact with our planet. First, we investigate wildlife and habitats, delving into the threats to life on Earth, and how we can save life on our planet. We also examine impacts on the physical and chemical cycles of Earth. It covers a broad scope of topics, from saving animals to global pollution, all extremely relevant to anyone living on Earth and wishing to survive for the foreseeable future.
