Estimating populations becomes a vital issue when dealing with endangered species. Understanding the causes of population fluctuation in an endangered species can often increase the scientists' ability to protect them.

A wildlife biologist and a wildlife technician in McClellanville, South Carolina examine many of the population issues and protection efforts surrounding threatened and endangered species.

This lesson challenges students to:
• Understand and demonstrate how small survivorship changes cause large population changes.
• Investigate linear and non-linear relationships through graphing.
• Learn to interpret regression figures (cause and effect vs. correlation).
