Interactive video lesson plan for: Collecting Poop to Save a National Park | Expedition Raw

Activity overview:

The civil war in Mozambique ended more than 20 years ago, but many victims have yet to recover. During the 15-year war, large wildlife such as lions, elephants, and hippos in Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park declined by more than 90 percent. "The rebel soldiers were poaching animals to eat them, but they were also hunting animals in order to trade their parts for weapons," explains wildlife ecologist and National Geographic Young Explorer Jen Guyton.
