Perseverance: Create a Recovery Plan and Help Your Endangered Species
Arrow Develop Recovery Objectives and Implementation Schedule
  Think hypothetically and pretend that you and the members of your group are actually in charge of setting up the recovery plan for your endangered species.
  1. See an actual recovery plan for Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly (Somatochlora hineana Williamson).
  2. Develop your recovery objectives and provide an explanation of how the recovery actions will address the threats to your endangered species.
    1. Use the ideas you generated from the HELP activity.
    2. Examine past and ongoing conservation efforts, the people and/or groups involved, and the challenges they have faced.
  3. Create an implementation schedule.
  4. The final part of your recovery plan is to complete a Roots & Shoots project so that you can help save the endangered species you researched.
    1. If you selected an endangered species in your community, you might be able to work with local scientists to help your species directly. Contact organizations in your area that work to help the species you researched and ask what you can do.
    2. If your endangered species is not in your area, your group can explore other ways to help.
      • Raise money for conservation efforts for the species you researched.
      • Develop a lesson plan about your endangered species to educate your community about the threats to your species.
    3. Once you have completed your endangered species project, complete an activity report.
