Our project will make all animals safe. Raise awareness through the news. Put posters on the bins. Have a clean up day at school and at the beach. Rubbish monitors in the yard.
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 visit various animal environments within our community, create replica animal environments to study in our classrooms, and hold a mini earth day fair around the topic of helping the community to save the natural habitats of animals in our environments.
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.
On December 6th 2014, people around the world will spend a few hours picking up litter in their street, neighbourhood, local park, beach, workplace school, or wherever they can, to make the world green and clean again, and safe for wildlife.

It's already been started... a campaign has sprung in Bang Sai Witthaya School (Bang Sai District) in Ayutthaya Province. They are the first school to take action – where they developed a recycling program and brought awareness to their community.
