Exploring the Human Stakeholder

Wildlife conservation is not just a biological problem; it is also a human problem. Whether looking through the lens of earth systems, environmental science, or biology, human impact is a curricular theme that is important for teachers to navigate in the classroom with their students. Join us at the Central Park Zoo to learn new ways to employ the zoo as a place to enhance student learning on this topic. Teachers will utilize exhibits and activities to explore content pertaining to human impact and wildlife conservation. We will be working towards finding a balance between informing students about threats to wildlife, while empowering them to be environmental stewards. The zoo’s ambassador species will be studied in greater depth to explore how human stakeholders act as both a threat and a solution to these animals’ conservation stories. There will be opportunities for teachers to share ideas with colleagues and reflect on their practice for future classroom application
