The latest UN report on Biodiversity states that of the Earth’s 8 million species, over 1 million are in danger of becoming extinct! When does a species become endangered, extirpated, threatened or vulnerable and what can we do to protect these animals from further decline? What happens when a species kept in check by natural predators is moved to an entirely new location? In this interactive program, you’ll find out how invasive species affect ecosystems, which animals are endangered in this area and how important cover, range and a diverse habitat are for animals. We’ll use games, activities and hands-on exploration to expose your students to some of the complex issues involved in protecting wildlife.
