Wildlife
Overview

Whether alligator snapping turtles, butterflies, white-tailed deer or red-tailed hawks, all animals have basic habitat needs that must be supplied in order for their species to survive and thrive. What can be learned and done in the 4-H Wildlife project is limited only by your imagination and knowledge. Study the habits and habitat of Missouri wildlife, learn about plant succession and it’s affect on various species, identify wildlife foods, identify wildlife species by their tracks, skulls, furs or feathers. You are encouraged to put your knowledge to practical use by designing, implementing and completing a habitat improvement project.
