Threatened species are plants and animals whose numbers are very low or decreasing rapidly. Threatened species are not endangered yet, but are likely to become endangered in the future.</p> <p>Consequences of poaching: Endangered AnimalsExtinctionLoss of biodiversity Any other consequences? </p> <p>Endangered Animals: </p> <p>What animals in Africa are endangered? </p> <p>Endangered Animals Project: 1.) Select an endangered animal that lives in Africa. 2.) Choose to work individually, in partner or a group of 3. 3.) Begin researching information about your endangered animal. 4.) Complete Endangered Animal handout. We will present the information about our animals in class. Teach each other! </p> <p>*Be sure to use RELIABLE sources.

Circle of life! Biodiversity! </p> <p>As a human being, how do you think or feel about this ongoing global and potentially disastrous problem?</p> <p>How can you as an individual help this cause?</p> <p>Support nature centers, nature reserves, or botanical gardens; volunteer money, time, and ideas. Avoid buying ivory, snakeskin belts, alligator boots, and other products made from endangered animals. Keep learning about plants and animals; share what you've learned with others! Knowledge is power! </p> <p>How can you as an individual help this cause?</p> <p>Final Gallery Walk: Reflect on your learning about African Wildlife, specifically endangered animals. What do you know about this animal? What is threatening the survival of this species? What questions do you still have? </p>
