Aquatic WILD 2013: A Reintroduction for Project WILD Coordinators Aquatic WILD History & Goals 1987 First Edition 2000 Revised Project WILD Aquatic as part of comprehensive PW program evaluation 2013 Expanded Goal: To build on existing AW materials with emphasis on expanding Field Investigations, STEM and Wildlife Career opportunities Webinar Goals & Guides Webinar Goal: Familiarize PW Coordinators with expanded content and updates within the Aquatic WILD 2013 guide in order to assist in the format adaptation of facilitator and educator training experiences. Adaptation: The adjustment or changes in behavior, physiology and structure of an organism (Coordinator) to become more suited to an environment (AW13).

STEM extensions makes use of a variety of tools from litmus tests to Smartphones and involve students in the application of technology, science and math as part of their problem-solving efforts. A career component added to all activities to tie in real occupations in the field of wildlife management and conservation with every lesson.

Students evaluate habitat in the schoolyard to determine if sources of food, water, shelter are available in the needed arrangement for a specific animal species to survive. Students investigate wildlife and signs of wildlife in their schoolyard as well as the locations of water that wildlife might use. Behavioral Physiological Structural Seven *NEW* Aquatic WILD Activities Students plan and promote a PSA informing people about actions they can take to conserve fish and aquatic environments. Students create a “water web” to illustrate the interdependence among water users and producers. Explores occupations in wildlife conservation and involves students in a simulated job fair and interview process. Students research and interview for wildlife-related jobs. Students learn about indicators or vital signs used to gauge the health of streams and rivers, apply their knowledge in analyzing the hypothetical urban waterway and write a prescription for action. Behavioral Physiological Structural Activity Content Updates Plastic Voyages • Title change from “Plastic Jellyfish” • Expanded content to include larger issues with marine plastic pollution • Procedures use sand in place of soil Where Have All the Salmon Gone? A Whale of an Issue • Updated data change from variety of fish in Columbia River of Oregon to Chinook Salmon in rivers and streams in California’s Central Valley • Title change from “When a Whale is Right” • Minor background content and group division changes Behavioral Physiological Water’s Going On? • Removed due to similar objectives covered in new activity “Water Works” Structural Training Adaptations Behavioral Physiological Structural Training Adaptations Training Format Trends Next Generation Science Standards Behavioral Physiological Structural Training Adaptations Tabbi Kinion (L), Colorado Project WILD Jen Dennison (R), Ohio Project WILD Shannon Hafner, Iowa Project WILD Behavioral Physiological Training Format Trends Adapting the training model to include Field Investigations Structural Training Adaptations Behavioral Physiological Structural Thank You WILD!
