“First, select a zoo to “”observe”” your primate via their onsite cameras. Here are some suggestions:
https://zoo.sandiegozoo.org/live-cams (Links to an external site.)
https://www.houstonzoo.org/explore/webcams/gorilla-habitat-cam/ (Links to an external site.)
https://www.highlandwildlifepark.org.uk/webcams/snow-monkey-cam/ (Links to an external site.)
I only need you to observe for 30 minutes.
Once you have done this, answer the following:
1. Please identify the primate that you chose to observe by providing the common name (ex: gorillas), genus name, and species name in proper nomenclature.
2. Please identify whether the primate you chose is considered threatened, at-risk, endangered, or critically endangered. This information is specific, so be accurate. Then, briefly explain what threatens the pending extinction of this primate and what factors are being done to help ensure their survival (https://www.iucn.org/resources/conservation-tools (Links to an external site.) is a useful resource, or you may use the zoo’s website!)
3.Did you learn anything about the primate you “”observed”” via the webcam that interested you? Anything funny, odd, or strange? Share your experiences!”
