Conservation Connect Series

Conservation Connect Series is a middle school level web-based video series produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This series inspires a new generation of conservation stewards by taking students on e-fieldtrips across the country to learn more about wildlife species, conservation careers, and technology used to study and protect these wild creatures. For example, students will learn about manatee behavior from a wildlife biologist and how law enforcement officers use high tech tools to arrest wildlife poachers. Students are encouraged to spend time outdoors, observe wildlife in their own communities, and learn more about local natural resource conservation.

Conservation Connect 6-8 minute Episodes

Our 6-8 minute episodes are available for teachers to watch with their students, and lesson plans are available in our “Educational Toolbox” tab. During the school year, your class has the opportunity to participate in Live broadcasts and ask questions to real wildlife experts.

From the dry deserts of New Mexico, to the warm springs of Florida, and the lowland bogs of the mid-Atlantic to the high mountains of California, Conservation Connect allows students to go on virtual fieldtrips across the country and learn about wildlife in the United States that live a variety of different habitats.
