Learning How Animals Use Their Senses from Parks As Classrooms

All animals have senses. Though they may not look like you or me, a bear, a frog, and a bird all have parts to their body which help them learn about their environment. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is home to over 20,000 known different types of animals and plants. The living things of the forest and the streams need to make or find energy from the sun, the plants and sometimes from other animals. How does a raccoon find food? How does a bird make a nest? How does a deer listen for its mother in the forest?The answer to all of the questions is the same: animals use their senses to survive.
