Animal Habitats

Imagine meeting a monkey or kicking up dust with a kangaroo. These animals live in the wild, so we don’t get to spend time with them in their natural homes—their habitats. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find out more about where they live, how they play, and how we can help them!

1. Find out about wild animals
2. Investigate an animal habitat
3. Create an animal house
4. Explore endangered habitats
5. Help protect animal habitats

When I’ve earned this badge, I will know more about wild animals and how to protect their homes.
