Dear Readers & Participants:

The NBTI Team
Welcome to the homepage of the National Biodiversity Teach-In!
We are the students and teachers of the Environmental Science classes at Elgin High School, and this is our project, that started in 2014, to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity and to inspire our participants to take action in it's protection.
We became passionate about biodiversity through the story of Martha, the last known living Passenger Pigeon, who died on September 1st, 1914. Our first #NBTI was organized to honor the importance of her death, 100 years prior, and it was a huge success, thanks to the contributions and support of people just like yourself.
Now, three years later, we continue to do these webinars in hopes to inspire more people to help with our cause. We are looking for professionals, legislators, teachers, and anyone who wishes to get involved, participate, and/or make a difference, and help us spread the word about our teach in. Let’s continue this national movement.
If you are interested in learning about Biodiversity....we want you
