									                             Endangered Species Presentation


PURPOSE
To develop an interest in one endangered or threatened species found in Idaho, and to
practice skills associated with research, oral presentations, and using presentation
software.

PROCEDURE
Give an oral presentation on one endangered species. You may use presentation
software(PP) or posters with drawings and photos.

The report should include these details (you will be graded on if they are all present):

Life History:
        Size
        Diet
        Reproduction
        Habitat
        Niche
Commercial value if any
Interesting facts
What has led to it’s endangerment?
When was it put on the endangered species list?
What is being done or why not?


Your presentation should be 5-10 minutes in length and you should know the topic well
enough to speak without note cards or simply reading your PowerPoint slides. The report
should contain a minimum of 10 slides of information and photos. Check your own work
before your presentation to see if you are meeting all of the above criteria. One additional
slide should cite the sources you used.

On the reverse side of this paper you will find species listed as Endangered, Threatened,
or under consideration for such listing compiled by the BLM. If you want to report on a
species not listed here, which may be endangered regionally if not in Idaho, consult with
me first.
