The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.

Our project is focused towards cleaning up trash in the hiking trail by cypress creek park. We will accomplish this by going around the trail and picking up trash that we see.

To solve the environmental issue of increased trash and litter in the ecosystem, we propose to advocate protecting the environment by raising awareness for the damage caused by such pollution. We intend on making posters that promote students to pick up their own pieces of trash after lunch to ensure that we play our part in preserving the environment.

In order to improve the environmental habitat in our school community, we will go around our block and collect all of the trash left by the students at Cedar Park High School. This is only a temporary solution, but in order to stop or reduce the pollution caused by the students, we plan to create posters, not only informing about the long term environmental consequences, but the short term ones, as well. We will post these posters throughout the school to hopefully inform the students about the harm they are doing when they engage in simple acts like leaving trash on the ground.

In order to get the most out of the experience, we will make it into a fun game with prizes! We will split up into teams and spread out in different areas around our school, and meet back at a designated location afterwards. Those who collected the most trash will be awarded special prizes.

I will deliver a talk and presentation to my grade 6 class at Esther Starkman School. I will also be handing out hand made pan flits to the class. I will have a craft sale at my local park to raise awareness to the community. All the money will be donated to the David Suzuki Foundation in order to push towards saving the bees in Canada. http://www.davidsuzuki.org/
