This activity is about the relationship between habitat destruction and wildlife population. Learners will graph data provided about the prairie potholes and discuss the effects of habitat destruction and climate change on waterfowl breeding. They will then perform a R.A.F.T. Assessment (Role of the Writer, Audience, Format, Topic) where they will write a memo to the President summarizing the impact of climate change on the region and make recommendations about the status of the wetlands and wildlife. Links to additional resources and references are provided. This is the second of three activities in the "The Impact of Climate Change on Prairie Potholes" section of the Climate Change, Wildlife and Wildlands: A Toolkit for Formal and Informal Educators.
