Watch Live - Bison Calves in Yellowstone

A few minutes ago I was browsing Facebook when I noticed that the Yellowstone National Park page was livestreaming images of bison and their new calves. You can view the stream here right now.

If you're not able to view the stream because of restrictions on your school filters or you want more information about bison, check out the following resources.

Meet the American Bison does a fine job of showing younger students basic facts about bison. If you look carefully, you'll also notice that it does a great job of modeling how to cite the sources of images used in a video.

Older students who want to learn about bison should turn to the resources available on the Yellowstone National Park website. Those resources include the following video about the challenges of bison conservation.

And find more resources for learning about Yellowstone in this blog post written by Beth Still.

Infographic and Video from Nature - Wolf vs. Buffalo

Over the weekend I enjoyed watching an episode of Nature titled Cold Warriors: Wolves and Buffalo. The entire episode is available to view online. The video does an excellent job of telling the story of the challenges that face each animal during the winter. I found myself rooting for each animal at different times in the video. I will warn you that if you're a "softy" like me when it comes to animals, you may find yourself fast forwarding at times.

On the Nature website there is a nice infographic that compares the wolf and the buffalo. It's a good graphic for quickly gathering basic information about the two animals. I've included a small copy of it below. Visit this Nature page to get the high resolution version.
