Stories of Conservation Work Around the World

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), a nongovernmental organization headquartered at the Bronx Zoo in New York City, aims to conserve the world’s largest wild places in 14 priority regions. WCS presents Field Sight brings the pioneering work of the Wildlife Conservation Society to the classroom. Pairing the insight of WCS educators with the expertise of field staff, videos and curated curriculum tools support STEM understanding. Students can dig into practical applications of biology, genetics, ecology, and more. For example, students learn from experts the way that maps, math, and modeling provide a bird’s eye view of how Earth is changing and what humans can do to protect it. They will hear directly from WCS staff about the work the organization is doing to protect the critically endangered Grauer’s Gorilla. Students will also learn that WCS has been working to protect American bison by partnering with the National Park Service to understand the genetic integrity of bison in federal herds. Curriculum tools created by educators bring this valuable information into the classroom to build deeper understanding of important interdisciplinary and crosscutting concepts.
