Description

This case study explores the ecological relationship between black-tailed prairie dogs and black-footed ferrets. The primary focus of this case is on the ecological consequences of a captive breeding and reintroduction program but since black-footed ferrets are listed as an endangered species, students will also explore social issues (where and how to reintroduce ferrets), and political dynamics of a species that crosses both state and national borders. This case is intended for biology majors taking a course in ecology but throughout the teaching notes, we provide variations on the case so that it could be used for undergraduate university students in an introductory class for majors or non-majors, or even an upper-level course in a related topic such as conservation biology.
