You are about to go in a quest through the internet to find out the history of Taylor Park and how its food chain supports the park as a ‘Bird Sanctuary’. There is a lot of confusion in town about who originally owned the land and what would happen if it was no longer a park.
You will be given tasks to complete, which will take you through different websites about Taylor Park and the creatures it supports.
In the centre of Torquay is a parcel of land we call Taylor Park. Different people have used it for various purposes over the years.
You are a reporter for the local newspaper and have heard that there is a proposal to sell the land. However, there is confusion about who owns the land and concern about the creatures that live there.
Who does the land belong to? Why is it named after John William Taylor? Who was this man? How has the park developed over the last 120 years? What does this mean for the birds if the land is sold?
