August 2015 - Habitat Helpers!




A habitat is the place in which a species is suited to live. It contains the food, water, shelter and space necessary for the species' survival. The amount of suitable habitat generally determines the variety of species and the number of individuals that can live in an area. In this month's Kids for Conservation® feature you can learn how to be a Habitat Helper! and share with us your observations, photos, artwork and stories/poems about how you are helping wildlife!

Kids for Conservation® requests are intended for Illinois youth younger than 18 years of age. Educator resources are also posted on this page.

Next Month's Topic: mourning doves
