Reptiles, amphibians in Canadian classrooms

This video from Canada says about itself:

ARC #20: A Special Message for Science Teachers and Pet Owners

“Live animals are undeniably an essential and economical tool for teaching students about the natural world. Lessons on biodiversity, physiology, genetics, and animal behavior would be dull, if not impossible, without the use of live specimens. Live animals in the classroom help to stimulate student curiosity, keep students focused during presentations, and promote respect for non-human animals and their ecosystems. And they’re also a great source of pleasure for pet owners.”

“The great outdoors is the foundation of all life on Earth, including yours.”

Episode 20 of a year-long 24 episode education-outreach video series starring Whit Gibbons (Herpetologist and Author), produced in cooperation with The Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy.

This series features “fascinating facts and helpful conservation tips” for everyone “from homeowners to professional land and wildlife managers.”
