Ecology of Bird Loss project: Research Experience for Teachers
"The first law of ecology is that everything is related to everything else." -Barry Commoner
Research Experience for Teachers
Since 2010, the Ecology of Bird Loss project has been working with teachers in K-12 schools in the Mariana Islands through the National Science Foundation's Research Experience for Teachers program. This program has funded teachers to participate in field research for a summer alongside EBL field crews, and to develop curriculum focused on bringing field ecology into the classroom. The teachers who have participated in the RET program have created a selection of lessons on forest ecology aimed at students in grades 7-12.
