Endangered Animals A WebQuest

Introduction

There are many endangered animals in the world today. "Endangered" means these animals are at risk of extinction (dying out). These animals are dying for many reasons: things people are doing, the animals' environment, things other animals are doing.

Conclusion

Remember that as people who are made in God's image, we have a responsibility to care for the world, especially endangered animals.

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
