Conservation in the Classroom
Bring conservation and science to life in your classroom by giving your students the opportunity to hear and interact with someone in the field. Through free 45-minute virtual events livestreamed on our website, students can hear WWF experts share stories of their experience working to protect species and habitats around the world. Sign-up to be one of the participating classrooms and your students can interact with the expert and ask them questions.
Livestream: Friday, June 7th, 1:00-1:45 pm
No Plastics in Nature
Erin Simon, Director for Sustainability Research and Development, WWF
Erin Simon is interested in how the materials we use for packaging, like plastic, impact our environment and what we can do to minimize those impacts. At WWF, she works to protect Earth’s natural resources by staying up to date with new technologies that make materials more Earth-friendly, and then working with companies to use them. In this session, Erin will share with students the threats that plastic pollution places on our environment along with what she’s been working on to rethink how we use plastic and what we can do with it when we are done. Students will also learn how they can do their part to help protect species and habitats around the world.
