Will your students enjoy throwing wolf-scented snowballs... at a moose? Can they tell jaguars apart by their spots? Or lemurs apart by their chromosomes?

All of these activities are possible when your class embarks on Wild Explorations in Science, a new online program designed to put students in the muddy boots of field biologists. Using real research and actual data collected by scientists at the Wildlife Conservation Society, Wild Explorations in Science teaches high school life science through inquiry-based interactive projects that bring students face to face with wildlife and wild places.

You will achieve your standards-based goals for high school biology students and they will be motivated as never before as they explore the lives of wolves, jaguars, eels, lemurs, tortoises, songbirds and more!
