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.
Livestream: Tuesday, November 10th at 1pm ESTHow Technology Can Help Wildlife
Eric Becker, Wildlife Conservation Engineer, WWF-US
As a kid, Eric Becker was a self-proclaimed ‘nerd’ who had two main interests: gadgets and animals. So naturally, as an adult, he followed a path that led him to combine those two passions. Eric is now a Wildlife Conservation Engineer with WWF and works to advance technologies that help protect some the world’s most beloved species. Join Eric as he shares some of his favorite projects (including one recent project involving rhinos) and offers advice to young, fellow ‘nerds’ to inspire them to consider similar science career paths.
