Online Databases

  • Gale Science in Context – This database has articles about species characteristics (size, color, etc.), biology, habitat, endangered status, and conservation efforts.  You can also find the latest news articles about your species so you have the most up-to-date information!
  • Britannica School – Get information at whatever reading level is most comfortable for you!
  • Grolier Amazing Animals – You can use the search bar at the top to find information about your animal.


  • ARKive – This site gives information about habitats, biology, endangered status, threats, and conservation for each species.  There are also great pictures!  You will notice that each species article is followed by a bibliography with links to other resources.  This is a GREAT way to extend your research (it also shows that this is a credible source), so go check those links out!
  • Earth’s Endangered Species – This is another great site that gives basic information about all the species on your list.  Write down the other possible names for your species – those will help you find it on other websites!



  • Britannica Image Quest – This is your best source of images, because all 3 million are legal to reuse. Remember, images you find online are protected by copyright law.
