Welcome to Conservation Connect

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
Conservation Connect is a middle school level web-based video series produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
This series inspires a new generation of conservation stewards by taking students on e-fieldtrips across the country to learn more about wildlife species, conservation careers, and technology used to study and protect these wild creatures.
Our 6-8 minute episodes are available for teachers to watch with their students, and lesson plans are available in our “Educational Toolbox” tab. During the school year, your class has the opportunity to participate in Live broadcasts and ask questions to real wildlife experts.
Conservation Connect “Live” broadcasts are now available on-demand.   These episodes run 30-60 minutes and have been recorded with online student audiences or with classes that have visited the NCTC studio.  All “Live” episodes feature wildlife or fisheries biologists who provide insights on their career path and the species they protect.
