HELPING TEACHERS INSPIRE COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS, PEOPLE & THE ENVIRONMENT
- Project Noah was created to provide people of all ages with a simple, easy-to-use way to share their experiences with wildlife. By encouraging your students to share their observations and contribute to Project Noah missions, you not only help students to reconnect with nature, you provide them with real opportunities to make a difference. In addition to finding great educational resources, you can also create your own mission or join existing missions like the Global Schoolyard Bioblitz or Wildly Hairy Wildlife of Alberta.
- Bumble Bee Watch is a collaborative effort to track and conserve North America’s bumble bees. This citizen science project allows for individuals to upload photos of bumble bees, have your identifications verified by experts, help researchers determine the status and conservation needs of bumble bees, learn about creating bumble bee habitat, and more. You might even find remnant populations of rare species before they go extinct!

They track the spring and fall migration patterns of monarch butterflies, robins, hummingbirds, whooping cranes, gray whales, bald eagles and other birds and mammals; the budding of plants; changing sunlight; and other natural events. Find migration maps, pictures, standards-based lesson plans, activities and information to help students make local observations and fit them into a global context.
