Helping Canadians across the country (and beyond) to step outside, get familiar with wildlife and engage in the natural world – that’s our educational goal of Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Education Department. In conjunction with National Wildlife Week, CWF has a variety of resources, programs and activities designed to inspire conservation ethic for all.
Discover a variety of related lesson plans, activities and resources to help you celebrate National Wildlife Week with your class, your community group or your program participants.
- Lesson Planning Guide
- Migratory Species Need Migratory Spaces
Everywhere, from the Arctic to Antarctica, finned, furred, fanged, and feathered travellers are on the go.
- Make Way for Wild Migrants
Sometimes called the lifeblood of the Earth, migration is like a vast circulation system that pumps blood toward the Earth's poles in spring and back toward the equator in fall. It cycles nutrients, energy, and genetic information around the globe.
Watch Over Wild Wanderers
- Make Your Project Happen
Creating habitat for migrants is simple if you develop your project in stages and if it is driven by student initiative.
- Mind a Micro-Migration
You too can give safe passage to rambling reptiles and ambulatory amphibians.
- Conserve Corridors
As human developments continue to dice, mince, and pulverize natural areas, the need for connectivity between fragmented habitats becomes more vital. To achieve that goal in your area, give these projects a try.
- Lend Wings to Migratory Birds
We may have solved the mystery of the vanishing songbirds. But as far as their habitats are concerned, we've barely begun to put the pieces back together.
- Go to Bat for Bats
People are finally recognizing the value of bats.
- Support Soggy Spaces
Help make way for migrants that rely on watery spots by tackling any of these habitat projects.
