Abstract

This project explores how wildlife films can be used as effective tools for environmental education. The literature review in this project shows that wildlife films have been proven to 1) increase viewers’ knowledge about wildlife concerns, 2) positively change attitudes and behaviors toward wildlife, and 3) prompt action to save wildlife species. The findings from this literature review led to the development of the project. The project is a website designed as a resource for educators to use to teach wildlife films in their classrooms. The website includes diverse materials that educators can use to create lesson plans such as suggested lesson activities and a list of wildlife films recommended to show in class. The website will be used in classroom settings and is adaptable for any grade level. The goal of this project is to provide educators with the tools they need to teach students about wildlife species and the ways to protect them.
