Wildlife education is important on the elementary level because it teaches children how we connect to our world. They can learn about watersheds, ecosystems, habitats, and more. They can locate and identify animals and find out about their environments and their places in the food web. Children can readily see an animal's physical characteristics, where it lives, and what it eats. Educating children about wildlife is fun and rewarding.
One way elementary age children can become educated about animals and their environments is to study how they become extinct. Usually this process facilitates a development of an awareness about wildlife that helps them to see the need for social responsibility in that regard. Children can learn ways to protect wildlife and prevent extinction, even at the elementary level.
Wildlife education shows children how to be responsible with the environment and the things in it, like the flora and fauna. They can learn about conservation. They can create their own mini wildlife center by growing a flower garden or arranging a portion of their yard into a habitat.
