Grand Canyon National Park's free distance learning programs offer students an exciting introduction to the science behind the park.

Where the Wild Things Live engages students in a live and interactive wildlife lesson with park rangers via the Internet. Students learn about Grand Canyon animals by exploring the differences and similarities between pets and wildlife. They compare how domesticated and wild animals find food, water, and shelter to survive, as well as how both interact with humans. The program lasts about 45 to 60 minutes.
