Ecology Project
You are co-directors for the New York Zoo in Lowville, NY. Recently, the National Zoo in Washington D.C.has contacted the owners of your zoo, the New York Zoo. The New York Zoo has received a grant to build anew exhibit. The grant money will allow your zoo to build a spacious habitat with several species of the chosen population. This exhibit will be the main attraction for your zoo. The owners have asked you to build a displaythat will educate visitors on the Ecosystem of this population, with detailed information on the habitat,community, niche, living and nonliving limiting factors, and adaptation features. The owners are also requiringyou to give an example of a predator-prey relationship and to chart the producers and the consumers in the population’s community. If you chose a plant you will need to show the Water cycle. If you have chosen ananimal you will need to show the Nitrogen CycleHow to Begin:
