West Virgina Wildlife
We can save birds like Cardinals by not knocking down their nests when they lay eggs and have babies in them. We can also stop cutting down trees so they can nest.
The cardinal breeds in Flordia. They have four to six eggs. They are a whiteish dull color and have olive brown on them. When they make their nest they have dry grass, twigs, grape vines, and leaves.

In order to keep honeybees from becoming extinct, we can stop building so many buildings and stop putting chemicals in our gardens. Because they go to pollenate our vegetables and flowers and then the chemicals inject into their bodies. And we wouldn't have any vegetables, flowers or honey if they were extinct.

To enjoy brook trout and keep the population safe we need to stop polluting rivers and lakes! If you would like to see trout you can go to a fresh water stream or lake. Or you can go to hatcheries where trout and other fish are raised.

To help black bears we can learn to only hunt during hunting season so we have enough black bears to enjoy the population. We can also keep a good amount of food for them by not killing to many fish. So that we can enjoy the life of Black Bears.
The mother has babies in January called the full moon. Also called the bear moon.
