WILD About Elk Educator Guide

About the Guide

Created in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, WILD About Elk provides a summary of the biology and ecology of elk. Topics addressed include physical characteristics and adaptations, habitat and historical range, behavior, life cycles, social structure, migratory patterns, and the present and historical relationships between elk and humans. A primary message woven throughout the guide is the importance of habitat to survival. Activities in the guide assist educators in helping their students learn about elk and their habitat. A resource list facilitates further exploration of issues affecting elk.
