Experiential and Immersive Coursework

Wildlife Conservation

Designing a Stakeholder Engagement Activity

It is important to learn how to work and communicate as a team in order to be successful in your professional career. Students are tasked with coming up with a plan to manage their local wildlife. They will design a stakeholder engagement activity that will allow them to collect data needed for analysis to determine the management plan.

Wildlife Habitats Plant Inventory

Exploring their local communities, students are tasked with identifying different plants and creating an inventory of their findings. Once they establish what wildlife is present, the students create a management plan for their communities.

Comparing Local to Global Perspectives

Although species like ticks are present in all parts of the world, their survival needs are very different from place to place. Students learn about the variety of species and compare them with the types of ticks that they have in their local environments. Students learn how to manage these different species.
