Backyard Wildlife 101
This lesson covers the basics of wildlife in Missouri, and how humans should base their interactions. We discuss what to do if you see a wild animal, and how to discern various aspects of its
behavior. We go over how to tell if the animal is injured or orphaned, and what to do if you think it might be in either situation. In addition, we discuss the considerations when interacting
with wildlife, and how to observe them safely.
"Imagine Compassion" brings students in our community together in an unprecedented way. This program allows students to explore their feelings about native wildlife. Students will
consider why some animals are "beautiful" while others are "ugly" and why some animals are "scary" while others are "friendly". We will discuss why all elements of an ecosystem are important,
and students will have a chance to tell their own wildlife stories.
The Wildlife Rescue Center: Rehabilitation and Release
Explore the world of wildlife rehabilitation with one of St. Louis area's most experienced organizations. Learn about the reasons for wildlife rehabilitation, details
on the care of each animal species, and the sorts of injuries common to wild animals in Missouri. Students will view the new Wildlife Rescue Center DVD and see images
of our work first hand. We take time for a detailed question and answer session, and students will have the chance to make a craft for our wildlife patients in the hospital.
Wild vs. Domestic
This lesson delves into the confusing topic of comparing wild animals with those of their domestic cousins. Students learn the history of animal domestication,
and which animals are wild and which are domestic. Through a lively and interactive lesson plan, students come to a deeper understanding of the "grey" areas between these two groups of animals.
