The Outreach Program at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory annually presents about 300 talks to school, civic and professional groups. Educators give 45-minute to one-hour talks with live animals as visual aides. Topics can include animal adaptations, biodiversity, ecology of the southeastern U.S. Coastal Plain, endangered species, habitat destruction, and natural resource conservation.
