On the brink on tour

'On the Brink on Tour' (OTBOT) is an environmental exhibition and quiz game about Australia's threatened species and their habitats. It combines creative drama, art and environmental issues into an exciting, interactive performance which is informative, lots of fun and involves everyone in the audience.

Key attractions of OTBOT include its adaptability to suit each group of participants, its focus on local environmental issues relevant to particular habitats, its interactive and enjoyable approach to learning through group decision making and problem solving activities, and especially, the colourful paintings and costumes.

Community groups, conservation agencies, schools, museums, botanical gardens, zoos and wildlife parks throughout Australia are hosting OTBOT during 1995 and 1996.
