IN THE FIELD
There is no better way to prepare the next generation of conservationists than by bringing them into the field. Last Chance Endeavors provides opportunities for students to engage in real-world science, allowing them to hone the skills they need to study and care for their local environments while also exposing them to techniques used by ecologists and conservationists around the world.
Biodiversity, or the variety of life found in an area, is an excellent way to assess the overall health of an ecosystem. Last Chance Endeavors is working with county parks departments and local schools to get teams of student researchers out into our greenspaces, examining and recording the biodiversity that is present. These studies not only connect students to their environment, they also provide critical baseline data that allows managing agencies to assess threats to local species.
