This online resource introduces the concepts of habitat management.

The resource is a Scootle interactive that teaches students how people's actions can have positive and negative impacts on the health of a water environment.

Students learn about the effects of pollution and introduced species, and take positive action to restore the health of a pond by planting native species and removing sources of pollution.
