Educator Workshop: Science of Prairie Dogs and Ferrets
The black-footed ferret is one of the most endangered mammals in the world. It has been declared extinct twice! And the fate of North America’s only native ferret is closely tied to that of the prairie dog. The Arizona Game and Fish Department has been working tirelessly to recover and manage both of these important grassland species.
In this exciting, hands-on workshop, we will be giving educators an opportunity to work in the field with Department biologists and learn how we conduct trapping surveys for prairie dogs in order to learn more about their populations. But not before we spend some time indoors learning about the natural history and management of both critters through engaging activities that can be brought back to the classroom.
