Springfield Zoo: If Springfield was to have a zoo, they would need careful planning for each animal exhibit. You are designing the information board that is in front of the animal exhibit as well as a proposal for what is necessary in each animal’s enclosure. The enclosure needs to mimic the natural habitat as closely as possible.
Your job is to conduct research on an animal. Your project must include the following info:
- Food: What foods are required for your animal?
- Explain what human actions have caused this animal to be ‘listed’.
- Explain the food web in which this animal is/was involved.
- Explain the habitat and geographic location of this species.
