The World of Endangered Wildlife. [Filmstrip, Cassette Tape Narration, Teacher's Guide, Two Copies of National Wildlife Magazine's Special Issue on Endangered Species, State-by-State List of Endangered Animals, and Wildlife Notes.]
National Wildlife Federation, Washington, DC.
The gradual disappearance of many species of wildlife, too often a prelude to extinction, is a problem of large proportions and increasing urgency. This filmstrip kit is designed to help students and teachers to understand the more serious threats to endangered species, what is being done about them, and how the individual can help. The kit contains a filmstrip entitled "The World of Endangered Wildlife" and an accompanying cassette tape. The teacher's guide, included in the kit, provides the filmstrip narration and photos of the filmstrip frames. Also included in the guide is a section of discussion questions and activities which correlate with the filmstrip. Topics in this section include: The Biggest Animal Ever, History and Extinction, and Seeing Endangered Wildlife. The kit also contains a list of endangered species by state; wildlife notes on the California condor, the American peregrine falcon, the Florida manatee, the Black footed ferret, and the Devil's Hole pupfish; and two specially bound copies of the April-May 1974 issue of "National Wildlife" on Endangered Species.
