Conservation in the Classroom
With many schools closed and kids at home, we are all adjusting to an ever-evolving situation. If you are a parent, caregiver, or teacher looking for content that can help children explore nature from their own homes, we want to help with Conservation in the Classroom.
Bring conservation and science to life by giving children the opportunity to hear from WWF experts. Through free 45-minute virtual events livestreamed on our website, children can listen as WWF experts share stories of their experience working to protect species and habitats around the world. As you watch live, you can submit questions for the expert, participate in polls and quizzes, and interact with the expert by showing how much you learned! These experiences are open to parents with children, teachers with students, and anyone interested in bringing conservation experts into your classroom or living room.
All upcoming events will be streamed live on this page. To participate, come back here on the day and time listed below.
Livestream: Wednesday, October 14th, 10am EST
Tracking snow leopards in Nepal
Samundra Subba, Research Officer, WWF Nepal
Snow leopards are a top predator in their rugged and harsh ecosystem, high in the Himalayan mountains. Their hunting activity helps keep their ecosystem balanced, so the health of their species also indicates the health of their environment. However, the elusive and solitary nature of snow leopards make it hard to spot them and even more challenging to study. Join Samundra from WWF Nepal as he talks about a satellite/GPS collaring project that revealed new information on the movement and behavior of these big cats. Learn how this technology works and why the information collected will help protect snow leopards and their habitats.
