Course Description

The habitat requirements of native animals are in a continual state of decline due to current threatening processes. Threatened species depend on us for survival, and without knowledge and understanding of what threats individual species face, we cannot ensure their continual survival. In this program, students will apply scientific understanding and critical thinking skills to suggest possible solutions to identified problems. Through connecting with threatened wildlife through animal interaction and engaging in conversation, students will learn about main threatening processes including habitat loss, disease, climate change and pollution, and identify solutions to the imminent danger many species face.
