A Squirrel's Tale

Written by
This book is aimed for science teacher's that instruct year 8 and year 9 (ages 12 to 14) students, with the goal of providing further insights to four themes related to conservation: Biodiversity, Alien Invasive Species, Ecological Connectivity and Endangered Species.

The Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) described in this book serves as the example species interconnecting all these themes. This endearing species was chosen because of its wide distribution pattern across Europe and that the closely related gray squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) has become an alien invasive species in some countries. There are many alien invasive species of animals and plants in Europe so do not be put off if in your country has no red squirrels. This book is broad enough so that it could be adapted to other species. However, please note that this book is not a comprehensive in-depth study of the red squirrel and the mentioned themes, but rather a book for teachers looking for a way to incorporate Conservation in the classroom.

This book features a before classroom activity, that may or may not be followed by a visit to a local zoo or oceanographic park, and then followed by a post-visit classroom activity.
