Our special needs classroom will create and run a Recycle Center inside our Elementary School: 1. Collect recyclables. 2. Sort material. 3. Track data 4. Earn coins "change" for each piece of recycled material. 5. Donate "change" to conservation of threatened habitat and protection of endangered species in Africa.

The time is day at 12:30. I will do by getting my friends and my dad and going to our near woods and building a fort and looking at the animals and writing the animals down and then when we get home I will look up the animals and do a report on them

Paint grey stripes 5-6 inches apart on a window. This way, instead of the bird seeing through the glass so it flies into it, the bird sees the stripes to fly around the hazard.

Find a forest with plenty of space and ecosystems then fence it off. Make sure the space is at least 2 acres. Allow no litter in to the area and when ever you know of someone who has captured an animal in a live trap, welcome them to bring the animal to your land and give it a happy home for the rest of its life

Last year, with support from Roots & Shoots and Tree People, we planted our native butterfly garden. This year we are developing educational materials about native gardens and butterflies for a trunk that the elementary teachers can borrow to use in their classrooms. In addition, we are developing content for a website and will collaborate with a high school media arts class to build the website.

We hope that our project will persuade people like you and me to take a stand against whaling. We will be doing this by spreading the word and get people to spread the news to people who don't know the damage done by whaling and try to persuade them to do something about it. Personaly, my partner and I will be creating a presentation to persuade our entire class to join the cause. To help, you can visit this website http://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/whale-wars/about-whaling/voice/ and contact the people that care. You can contact us at wongj2@s.dcsdk12.org and uptgraftcj@s.dcsdk12.org too. We encourage you learn more about whaling and join the cause! STOP WHALING!!!! Also please read the two paragraphs below. THANKS!!!-------------------------------------------- It’s Not A Game---------------------------------------- Think about it, what if there was a game, super hi-def, Plasma TV screen, best rated game of the century. All it is about, is killing whales, boats, they drive wave after wave after wave of whales, your job is to kill them. Hundreds thousands, realistic like you're doing it in real life? You might say, “But it’s not real, it would never happen in real life.” But the truth is, it’s happening everywhere in the world even as you are reading or being read to. Whales are being killed in places like Norway, Japan, Faeroe Islands, and Iceland. There are many ways that these intelligent beasts die from humans. Fishing nets, commercial whaling, and worst of all, some people are doing this just for fun. Could you do that, could you play that video game killing all those whales all for fun? Would you? The killing needs to STOP!!! Now we all have a question... Shatter the tradition, the killing, the mass slaughter, or shatter their lives. Whaling and commercial whaling is the biggest thing that is killing the whales. 10-58 species are being affected including the occasional dolphin. All of the whales that died from unnatural causes is around 320,000. The total amount of meat is 1,216,000,000 lb. which is one billion two hundred sixteen million lb. of whale meat. If you look up whaling pictures it is horrible. Most of the whales are just lying there dead, waiting to be butchered. Imagine the whales were the smart animals, and they were hunting us. Building massive vehicle that moved on land and they would swoop in and catch us, then butcher us and sometimes just for entertainment. Also know, pollution is also a may major problem. For example, operation toxic gulf is a project trying to stop a leak when one of BP’s major oil pipes exploded and they didn’t fix it. A scary result of thousands of gallons of untreated crude oil oozing into the Gulf of Mexico. If you thought that all that stuff was bad this is almost worst, fishing nets trap whales, porpoises, and dolphins. The death toll is around 300,000 whales, porpoises, and dolphins. Now I believe most of you have watched Dolphin Tale, and if you haven't then you have heard of Winter. She was caught in a crab trap and had to get her tail amputated. if the fisherman could have not been so careless when placing the trap, winter wouldn’t have to go through all that pain. Winter was lucky that the fisher and Soyer was there to help. otherwise winter would have died from sunburn and dry skin. Winter’s skin would have cracked which is very painful and she could also could have died from blood loss at low tide. Also, whales, dolphins, and porpoises are mammals so they need oxygen to breath. So if they are caught in a net underwater, they will die from lack of oxygen resulting in a slow and scary death. There are many traditions involving killing whales. For example, in the Faroe Islands, people will go on what they call grinds. People drive the whales towards shore with boats and people start to hack at their spinal cords and cut off their head. A horrible weapon that some people will use is explosive harpoons or grenade tipped spears. They literally explode in the whale's flesh. What if that happened to you, a little tiny bomb exploded in your arm. That would really hurt. About 1-200 whales are killed in each grind depending on the size of the pod and also how many people are participating. The water turns blood red, and whales lay dead in the water. Japan and Norway are also places that hunt from traditions and for feeding people. Japan killed 866 whales in the 2006/07 season of hunting. Norway took 545 in the same hunting season. Iceland is getting better and the numbers of whales killed has been decreasing. Minke whales at a population of 761,000 exists in the Southern Ocean according to Japan, though some claim the number is closer to 268,000. Just remember the bombs, and sharp weapons they use. The whaling needs to stop! There are many ways you can help. Vist http://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/whale-wars/about-whaling/voice/ and contact any of the important people that can help and are working for a good cause. Also, visit https://www.rootsandshoots.org/project/whaling-norway-and-japan and convince others to contribute to the cause. There is so much you can do. Remember the game, remember everything they do and how cruel it is. Keep in mind, the bombs. I still can’t get over that they put explosives in the animals flesh. So when you see whaling, hear about it, anything! Just remember... That you can help. You can stop it, so when you set down the controller, just remember, it’s not a game. Shatter the Tradition or Shatter Lives
I founded Wildlife Conservation Club at my university (Simon Fraser University (SFU)) - I initiated it - with another fellow student in January 2012. So far, the club is growing and have many exciting events and opportunities to come. However, my vision is much greater than this one school club - I want to expand it more. Thus, I am hoping to contact related departments at SFU to host a event or collaborate with another club from nearby university to make current events bigger. I am recent graduate and I can still help the club maintain itself and grow, while helping current executives of the club with ideas.

Right now we are collecting data in two of our courtyards. Each courtyard has two identical feeders. One feeder holds native seed and the other holds non-native seed. We have a bird camera focused on each feeder to help us collect our data. We use the pictures from our bird cameras to keep track of the number and type of each bird visiting each feeder. We put the same amount food in each feeder and keep track how often we need to fill the feeders. When this portion of our study is complete we are going to put out the same food out in different colored, but otherwise identical, containers. We will continue to use the bird cameras and both courtyards to collect our data.

We will clear the property of brush and overgrowth, remove non-native plants, plant native species, clean-up the beachfront, and restore the dunes to their natural state. On an ongoing basis, we will monitor the quality of the water and the conditions on the beach, and report our findings to the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
