Education Programs - Animal Adaptations

Eleanor paw edit

Wolves are found in a variety of environments, from the icy tundra of the Arctic to the woodlands of the southwest. How are they built to survive in these locations? Join a WCC wolf expert to learn about wolf superpowers - how their ears, feet, legs, and coats are all specially designed to allow a wolf to thrive in its native habitat. This program is suitable for elementary students.

This program will teach students about: 

  • Wolf range and habitat
  • Body parts and their specific uses based on the environment
  • Different types of wolves
  • Diet
  • Communication

The program will inlcude pre-recorded video of WCC ambassador wolves illustrating various adaptations and behaviors, and will provide access to live webcams of critically endangered red wolves and Mexican gray wolves.

Students will finish the program feeling empowered to help save wolves and will be equipped with the necessary tools to do so. The WCC wolf expert will provide students with ways to support wolves from home and school, and will offer suggestions for speaking up for wolves on a local, state, and federal level.
