Interested in enhancing your understanding of the living world and learning to teach about wildlife conservation in your subject area?
Classroom Earth, a National Environmental Education Foundation Program, is supporting middle and high school teachers who want to make wildlife conservation part of their curriculum. Classroom Earth’s 2011 Professional Development Grants will enable applicants to take one six-week online course offered by the Wildlife Conservation Society to create a strong foundation in wildlife conservation.
There are three courses available: Conservation Biology for Educators, Predators: Biology and Conservation, and Habitat Ecology for Educators.
