The young cottontail senses the presence of the fox! He “freezes” in place, hoping to make himself invisible. The fox is coming closer, closer; the cottontail bolts – the chase is on! “Quick Frozen Critters” is just one of the 124 activities available in the Project WILD guide. Project WILD (Wildlife in a Learning Design) is a unique, award winning conservation-education program emphasizing wildlife. At the heart of this environmental education endeavor are instructional activities; teaching basic wildlife concepts to participants while they develop learning techniques and problem solving skills. Reading, writing, arithmetic and other skill areas are woven into these activities. They foster an awareness of wildlife and promote responsible behavior and attitudes toward the environment.
