Animal Ambassadors

What can we learn from animals? Lots!

Human activities can affect animals—and sometimes jeopardize species that are at risk.

The way to protect animals is to teach our youngest students about different species, why they are important, and how our decisions impact them. IFAW's Animal Ambassador program delivers classroom-ready resources to teachers of grades K-2 and 3-5 to share those messages, while building important Common Core skills at the same time.
