Human Impact Project/Bee the Change: Home

During this project you will explore how humans are impacting the global community.  You will choose a specific species to explain the importance of the species and how humans are affecting this species. Furthermore you will perform an action to help the species and document your work with this.  Finally, you will create an infographic that will persuade the public on the importance of changing to protect this important species and a paragraph explaining your research as it relates to the infographic.
