About this Event

This is the first event in the Explorer Classroom Wildlife Series! Following each event, use our Educator Mission Guide and have your learners complete short hands-on “missions” designed to ignite their curiosity and deepen their connection to wildlife locally.

Explorer Christine Wilkinson is a carnivore ecologist and conservation biologist interested in human-wildlife interactions. Join to learn how they track spotted hyenas in Kenya and coyotes in California, and what we can learn from mapping the animals’ movements!

Explorer Classroom is an interactive session that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers for short lessons and Q&A. After the featured Explorer’s lesson, your students will have a chance to have their questions answered in real time! This event is recommended for student groups in grades 3-8 (ages 8-14), but all are welcome, and will take place on November 2nd @ 10am and 2pm ET; register for the time that works best for your class. A recording of the event will be available to watch on-demand on our YouTube channel if your students cannot attend live.
