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.

      Dr. Tshering Tempa | Program Director of the Bhutan Tiger Center, Bhutan

      Tigers are essential in maintaining the health of their ecosystems and when we protect them, we also help protect other forest-dwelling species. This year of the tiger marks a milestone year for tiger conservation, as organizations around the world are working harder than ever to bring awareness to these fascinating big cats. In honor of Endangered Species Day on May 20th, join Dr. Tshering Tempa, tiger conservationist, as he shares highlights from his work protecting tigers and their habitats in the mountains of Bhutan. He’ll discuss different tools and practices used in the field and share ways that you can help protect tigers from where you live. Suggested grade level: 4th - 8th
