Even if you can’t get out into the outdoors, you can still learn plenty about nature, thanks to Conservation Connect, the Service's online video series targeting young people. Each eight-minute episode highlights wildlife, careers and new technologies utilized to study and protect wild animals and the habitats on which they depend. Students and teachers who tune into the live broadcast can ask us questions and chat with our biologists in real time.
The series starts tomorrow, October 21, and to get ready for next week’s Bat Week, the topic is bats and small mammals. To view the live broadcast, visit http://nctc.fws.gov/broadcasts, and come back every third Wednesday of the month at 2 p.m. ET.
