The time when wild animals are having babies is upon us, and with that the DNR’s Keep Wildlife Wild team is hard at work.
The Keep Wildlife Wild team is tasked with providing information about wildlife species natural behaviors, tips on how to determine if a baby wild animal is truly orphaned, and what to do if someone finds a wild animal who is sick or injured. It provides handouts and a lesson plan, which includes an interactive activity and a list of Keep Wildlife Wild-themed books!
These resources and many more can be found at our Keep Wildlife Wild web page, under the Educational Materials tab.
One of the Keep Wildlife Wild team's initiatives this year was to hold a poster contest for 4th-6th graders across Wisconsin. The Keep Wildlife Wild team had over 200 amazing submissions and selected 3 winners from each grade. The team is hoping libraries statewide could help raise awareness of the contest and contest winners by displaying the winning posters, found at its poster contest winners webpage.
The team plans to host the poster contest again next year (more information coming in early fall), so raising awareness of the contest and winners will hopefully result in more submissions for the 2020 poster contest!
