The 'Aka the Fire Ant Tracker' show and teaching resources educate students about fire ants and how to help protect Australia from these pests.

Aka the Fire Ant Tracker is a 45 minute interactive and inquiry based educational show that addresses the effects and hazards of fire ants. The show stars a retired odour-detection dog named Aka who demonstrates to students how he's been trained to find fire ants in the field.

Aka the Fire Ant Tracker has been approved and accredited by Education Queensland for students P-7 and specifically addresses one of the Australian Curriculum priorities - sustainability.
