WILDLIFE SECTION   Wildlife section 

 

Updated October 2012

This section of the contest will focus on wildlife species and their associated habitats. Wildlife is defined as any wild, non-domestic vertebrate animal including mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles that live year-round or migrate through Arkansas. Only Arkansas wildlife species and habitats will be used for the Arkansas Envirothon.

Wildlife Contest Parameters

Test questions for the wildlife portion of the Arkansas Envirothon will be developed from the Study Guide. Portions from the national Envirothon Curriculum Guidelines have been adapted to the Arkansas contest to help prepare participants for the national contest. 

This Arkansas Wildlife Study Guide lists key points and learning objectives that contestants should know using the identified resources. To help contestants, the contest will focus only on the list of wildlife species. Note that the guide and species may change from year to year. (These updates will occur by January 1 of the contest year.) The contest may have a few advanced questions in which contestants need to apply their knowledge to a particular situation, scenario or site. 

Resources from other states or national sources may contain information that does not apply to Arkansas. Such information will NOT be tested. For example, the exam will NOT ask the preferred habitat of a porcupine.
