The goal of this program is to bring participants to get involved in the conservation of biodiversity. The activities of this program should enable students to understand:
• the concept of biodiversity;
• the importance of a good quality habitat for wildlife;
• that there are rules to protect wildlife and its habitats;
• that they can take action to ensure the sustainability of wildlife.
Preparatory activity (Duration: 30 minutes)
This activity is presented by the teacher. It serves as a stimulus and makes it possible to ascertain the students’ initial notions concerning biodiversity and our relations with wildlife. The activity takes place in class prior to the officecer’s visit. Students are invited to watch a video about biodiversity.They must complete a short quizz before and after they have had a look at the video. Finally, the student uses a drawing to illustrate their connection to biodiversity.
Officer’s visit to the class (Duration : 2 periods)
The classroom visit consists of three parts. First of all, with the help of visual elements, students discover what is meant by "wildlife, a renewable natural resource". Then, stories will be used that encourage ethical questioning to allow them to deduce the two essential requirements for the renewal of wildlife and thus to test the hypothesis that they formulated in the preparatory activity. Finally, the officer will talk to them about his work. During the visit, the presence of the teacher is essential. In the interests of quality, officers may not conduct the activity with more than one class at a time.
Following the visit of the wildlife protection officer, a prize is awarded to a winning class among those who have completed and sent the evaluation form on time. Your class or one of your students also get a chance to win a regional prize.
To be eligible for the contest, you must complete your evaluation form (see your Teacher's guide) and send it to us at the following address:
