“Critters of New York” Educates a New Generation of Stewards

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Wildlife Forever partnered with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) to create an produce an original “Critters of New York Pocket Guide” to teach young New Yorkers about the native wildlife of their home state. The pocket guide profiles 50 native species. Each profile includes a color photograph of the critter and information on its home range, feeding and reproductive behavior and a “Did You Know?” section that provides interesting facts unique to that species. The species profiles also help students identify the animals’ tracks in the field. The NYSDEC will distribute the guides to youth through their outreach programs. Thanks to this partnership, a new generation of New Yorkers are learning to become stewards of their state’s abundant wildlife.
