In 2013, the Teen’s main job at the Sacramento Zoo is to work public education stations to teach visitors about wildlife conservation. In addition to working public education stations teens will volunteer at several zoo events, including; Museum Day, Earth Fest, Zoo Zoom, Where the Wild Kids Are, Summer Camp, Family Overnight Safari’s, Twilight Thursdays, Ice Cream Safari, Boo at the Zoo, and Holiday Magic. In addition to working zoo events, the teens organize, create, and implement the I Heart Sacramento Zoo enrichment event. In 2013, nearly 3,000 visitors attended I Heart Sacramento Zoo. In addition to general zoo admission, visitors get to see the animals enjoy all of the teen made enrichment and listen to the teens give enrichment talks at 13 different animal exhibits.

Our project will establish an area with appropriate predator proof enclosures for different species, available for the community, especially farmers, to come and see how they can keep their livestock safe. We will research the best techniques for predator proofing, costs to build and maintain the structures, organizations to partner with, and funding sources. Then we will build the structures, and open up the area so people can visit and learn!

The students have already learned about bats and watched the video on White-nose syndrome. We have yet to purchase the materials to build the bat houses. We would like to build at least 5 bat houses. In addition to houses being placed at the 40 acre Blue Heart Sanctuary, we would like to see if the local Dig-in Community garden would agree to having a bat house installed at their location. The staff and MAGIC students would have at least 1 hour per day, 3 days per week to build the houses. If needed, we would extend the building time 1 more week. After construction, we will present the finished houses to the Blue Heart Sanctuary and hopefully the Dig-In Community Garden. We will arrange a field trip so the students can be present for the installation of the houses. The students will be given monthly updates by Blue Heart Sanctuary on the status of the bat houses. Videos will be shared with the students once the houses become inhabited.

We will do a series of events in order to fundraise. The first one will be a vegan fundraising dinner at a very beautiful vegetarian restaurant. The dinner will cost 15 euros per person, of which 4 are for chimp eden and the rest for the restaurant. With this project we are directly helping animals (Nikki and Amadeus) and helping human comunity (the owners of the restaurant) and indirectly helping environment, animals and humans since the food is vegan, biological and the ingredients came mainly from local areas. We have a facebook event promoting this dinner (https://www.facebook.com/events/351129868396901/) as well as a crowdfunding event to gather money to save Nikki and Amadeus http://ppl.com.pt/pt/causas/nikki-e-amadeus

Go to a variety of wildlife habitats, identify wildlife by sound, sight, and scent. Collect fishing line from recycle bins and recycle it. Test pond and stream water to see extent of pollution. Check on condition turtle rafts and replace as necessary. Determine if native turtles re using it or invasive turtles.
