Media Constructions of the Environment: Endangered Species
High School through College - this kit covers a historical overview of American representations of endangered species from the slaughter of the American buffalo to Palm plantations in Sumatra. It compares conflicting constructions about human/animal relations, rainforest biodiversity, the Northern Rockies' gray wolf, frogs and Atrazine.
