Ways to Get Involved
A fundamental tenet in our approach to conservation is community engagement – from working with private landowners wanting to improve endangered species habitat on their land, to helping non-profits doing on-the-ground work.
Conservation Connect Series
Conservation Connect is a middle school level web-based video series produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Visit the Conservation Connect page to learn more!
This series inspires a new generation of conservation stewards by taking students on e-fieldtrips across the country to learn more about wildlife species, conservation careers, and technology used to study and protect these wild creatures.
Our 6-8 minute episodes are available for teachers to watch with their students, and lesson plans are available in our “Educational Toolbox” tab. During the school year, your class has the opportunity to participate in Live broadcasts and ask questions to real wildlife experts.
Conservation Connect Toolboxes are packaged episodes with additional middle school related content such as Conservation Connect lesson plans tailored to the Next Generation Science Standards, an activity guide, and a photo gallery for your students to use.
