How can we best protect endangered species?

Sometimes we can discover new ideas and strategies by looking in places that do not seem very obvious.

If we want to save the salmon we look at what folks have tried to do with the wolf and the eagle.

Instead of limiting our search to obvious words like "protection," we look through the thesaurus and broaden our search to include words such as "conservation" and "restoration."

These words may take us to some strange places. But we may discover some surprisingly good ideas where we least expect to find them.

Browse through the restoration sites below and see if you can find any surprising new insights to support your search for good ways to protect the endangered species you have selected for your research project.
