For today's Wildlife Writing Wednesday, we have provided a broad introductory prompt to introduce the wildlife writing theme for this year.
Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch works to provide a healthy and sound environment for the animals that call our sanctuary "home." We strive to ensure the survival and reproduction of more than 45 diverse species from around the world for future generations to enjoy. Name some species of wildlife you know, and give an explanation for what conservation is. Why is conservation important? What role does a place like NBWR play in worldwide conservation?
Please note, you may reference the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species to know the level of risk or threat to endangerment/extinction different species face: iucnredlist.org.
We're excited for you to use wildlife-related prompts in your classroom.
