Create Your Own Wildlife Posse
Round up a group to build bridges of hope for wildlife and the environment.
Talk to local biologists or other experts to identify a native wildlife species needing help or protection.
Research your species at your local library or on the internet. Become an expert on your species.
Ask for assistance from your State Park Service, Natural Resources Department or National Wildlife Refuge or Park as well as local and state colleges. Identify a point person who will keep you updated with current information.
Choose a grade level to focus your education program and involve teachers.
Create a board or poster display in your school or local community center or library with the facts you have gathered.
Work with your school and local media to reach even more people about the species you want to help.
At the Schools
Educate younger students creating a “challenge” and reading centers.
Help students learn about native wildlife by creating new wildlife habitat. Many states and conservation groups have programs for certifying your habitat and information about starting native plant gardens.
Spread the word to family and friends with presentations about your wildlife species. Education is powerful!
Pennies for your wildlife species – Create a container so students and community members can donate funds to help save your chosen wildlife species.
