“Critters of Texas” Educates Young Texans

Posted Monday July 24, 2017 by wf_admin

Wildlife Forever partnered with the Texas Wildlife Association to create an produce an original “Critters of Texas Pocket Guide” to teach young Texans 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 Texas Wildlife Association will distribute 10,000 copies of “Critters of Texas” to students through its youth conservation education programs. The project was funded by the San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. Thanks to this unique partnership, a new generation of Texans are learning to become stewards of their state’s abundant wildlife.
