This curriculum is designed for middle level students and explores the movement patterns of the non-migratory back vulture using Google Earth and “R” visualization software. These birds were tagged by Sanctuary scientists and are being tracked by satellite telemetry.

This interdisciplinary curriculum allows students to make data-based inferences about the black vulture’s life history and includes extensions that incorporate reading and creative writing. Participants will also receive natural history info from a Research Biologist!
