Crescent Point Energy Biological Diversity (G9)

Breeding for Species Survival

As we explore the nature of reproduction we’ll have some fun learning about the mating behaviours of some of our resident animals, and finding out how animals in the wild protect biodiversity in their species. We’ll learn about the species survival plan and about the science behind managed breeding programs while also discovering inter-species diversity from studying a variety of skulls.
