Conservation Connect LIVE - Junior Duck Stamp and Bald Eagles - Watch preview!

Join Conservation Connect host, Louie Ocaranza to learn about the Junior Duck Stamp Conservation Program, see some ingenious technology used to study waterfowl, and have a preview of the 2016 nesting season of our resident Bald Eagles.

In the first half hour we’ll talk with Suzanne Fellows, Program Coordinator for the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program. This is a dynamic art and science based curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others.

In our second half hour, we'll chat with Wildlife Biologist, ​ ​Jim Siegel​, ​to learn about bald eagle biology, behavior and their upcoming nesting season. Jim will give tips to help teachers use the NCTC Eaglecam in their classrooms, we’ll discuss the bald eagle conservation success story and we’ll check the nest for new eggs! As always, we welcome student questions via our online chat room and will answer as many as time allows.

Conservation Connect helps middle school students learn about wildlife, conservation careers, and the technology used to study and protect wildlife.
