Ducks in Danger

from Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy

Program image

This exciting program specifically focuses on endangered species and their captive management. Using waterfowl as our model, we will discuss: how it is decided and who decides that a species is endangered, what factors lead to the decline of a species, what LRWC is doing for these species, and what students can do to help.
