Wild Cat Teachers' Guide

guide coverThe Wild Cats of Southeast Asia: An Educator's Guide was developed as a partnership between The Clouded Leopard Project, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, and Wildlife Alliance to introduce elementary school students in Thailand to the natural history and conservation needs of the wild cats. The guide has not been printed in English for distribution in North America, however we encourage teachers to download this PDF for use.

The guide is written for teachers and provides background information on wild cat habitat, biology, behavior, research, and conservation that will be useful in leading discussions and activities with students. The activities provide the students with opportunities to ask questions, make discoveries, and work as teams to explore issues relating to wild cats and their environments. The activities focus on science and social issues as well as the work of scientists in the field. Through the activities, students will consider the same questions facing wild cat scientists and conservationists. We hope that these activities will engage and challenge your students.
