Design a Conservation Programme: Graphic Science (Ages 14-16)
In this ARKive activity, students research and design their own conservation programme to learn about the importance of biodiversity as well as the economic benefits and services ecosystems provide. Using examples of successful conservation programmes within the UK Overseas Territories, students learn about the fine balance of an ecosystem, the impacts of human activity, and the economic benefits and services an ecosystem can provide. They then put together a proposal for a conservation programme which they will present to the class and use as a basis for discussion.
The resources include a presentation to introduce the topic, a briefing pack and worksheets for students teachers' notes and ideas for extension activities.
