Wildlife Conservation and Management

Elk herd in South Bend, Washington

High school students learn about the history of fish and wildlife conservation in the United States and analyze the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation. Students consider how fish and wildlife managers balance diverse community interests and use data from the best available science to inform management decisions.

The lesson culminates with students working together to create their own fish and wildlife management plan that addresses global biodiversity decline while meeting community needs and the needs of future generations.
