Madagascar, Conserving Biodiversity
Grades 9-12, Approx. 50 minutes
How do scientists protect the future of a species? Students will answer this question as they explore the diverse world of lemurs at the Bronx Zoo's new Madagascar! exhibit. Live cameras will transport your class to our lemur exhibits, where students will explore the world of biodiversity. Through observation and classroom activities, students will learn what it takes to ensure a future for lemurs. This program has a strong focus on the role of genetics and geography in wildlife conservation, and includes visiting our fossa and ring-tailed mongoose exhibits.
