Protecting Wildlife & Wild Places - Project Ideas For National Parks

Dr. Jane in Alaska with Bears

Over the last several months, Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council has been promoting a special campaign to encourage and promote projects that protect wildlife and wild places in national parks across the United States. Their campaign included a video contest inviting students to discuss a project they would like to do to support a local national park.

Three common themes among the project ideas included:

Girls Education

The movement for girls education is growing significantly within our community, and we've got many exciting plans for the future! I'm hoping to expand into other communities in Australia and share the message of educating girls with as many people as possible. We've held screenings of the feature film Girl Rising to raise awareness and funds for the girls education movement in my community. I've also supported Offspring - a organisation building a rehabilitation shelter for female victims of human trafficking in India.
