St. Louis Zoo – One Health and Turtle Ambassadors
Grades: 6 - 12

Video Description: Conservation medicine examines the growing disease challenges that threaten the survival of wild animal species and that negatively impact human public health.  Under that umbrella, the One Health program looks at the interrelationship of diseases in animals and humans, in the context of environmental change.  A major part of studying that interconnection focuses on education. A good example is some of that work being done in the St. Louis Zoo Box Turtle Project.
