Description
This curriculum resource was produced by and for teachers in partnership with the Wilderness Committee, wildlife biologists and curriculum specialists. It’s intended to give students Grades 8 to 12 the opportunity to learn about species at risk in British Columbia in their local environment, understand the threats and identify what they can do to help. Module 1 is an introduction to species at risk while Module 2 specifically focuses on amphibians. Each module uses a project-based learning approach where students will be introduced to the topic, then develop field investigative skills and participate in citizen science. Our resource contains links to valuable multimedia resources as well as ideas to help students connect with species at risk in their community.

Description
Most people don’t realize that British Columbia has the richest biodiversity of any province or territory in Canada. Biodiversity can be measured in many ways, but the simplest way to measure it is by species richness—the number of species present. Within our species-rich territory, there are many species at risk, and in most cases, human activity is responsible for the decline of wildlife populations.

Learning Standards
There are nine Species at Risk outreach kits. Each outreach kit focuses on one species at risk and includes a specimen, information about the species, its habitat and the risks it faces. The kits are a great catalyst for reading, research or an inquiry project.
