"Environmental Adaptations" explores the structure, form, and habits of animals and their relationship to factors within the animal's respective environment. Students observe a wide variety of animal adaptations as they experience hands-on amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
"For an organism to survive within it's environment it must rely on a myriad of structural and behavioral features called adaptations; each rigorously selected for over countless generations. Extinction is the result when a species fails to adapt to a changing environment. This program examines the adaptive features of animals, their role in the animal's survival and how the environment impacts adaptation".
