Go Wild...Smithsonian Wild!
Smithsonian Wild presents a collection of photographs of animals in the wild. Smithsonian Wild uses the photographs to show the diversity of different animals and their existence in a range of habitats all over the world. Scientists are able to use the photographs from the motion-triggered camera to study and answer questions concerning conservation and ecology. These cameras are posted on trees, along trails, and various other places within the animal's habitat. Smithsonian Wild hopes that these photographs will grab your attention and encourage you to learn about the animals, their habitats, and the steps to conservation.
Smithsonian Wild offers a searchable index of photographs, as well as a list of ongoing projects. Smithsonian Wild would be a welcome addition into a science classroom. I suggest checking it out, I believe the images on the home page will draw you in and you will spend time learning about the various animals that have been photographed by Smithsonian Wild.
