EXPEDITION: Ecosystem Engineers in the African Savanna

Coming Soon!  This adventure lands us in Kenya, home to some of the most amazing wildlife in the world! Learners will explore the African savanna, become familiar with the idea of ecosystem engineers (how certain species, like elephants, can have a major influence on the structure and function of their environment), and examine what happens to the environment when ecosystem engineers are lost.
