Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v10 n1 Article 11 Jun 2009
In this study, student science teachers' ideas and views of endangered bird species and their protection are analysed. 173 student science teachers studying at Selcuk University in the department of science education, participated in the study. Data analysis provides evidence that the majority of students thought that human intervention is required to protect endangered birds. Student teachers gave their opinions relating to hunting prohibitions, preventing pollution and protecting the environment and appropriate environmental possibilities for reproduction of bird species. Literature on the subject has been scanned, results have been discussed, and some recommendations relating to protection of endangered bird species have been made. (Contains 3 tables.)
