We will be growing a Jane Goodall Institute Base Camp and spreading the word about the Roots and Shoots Program and how people can get involved. We will foster the growth of Roots and Shoots in our community by encouraging people to join and letting them know exactly how. Then we will plan and hold a Roots and Shoots Festival to celebrate our accomplishments.

In this project, we will find parts of the world that are environmentally unstable and we will host fundraisers with a purpose to provide these underdeveloped environments with much needed necessities. We will raise the money through bake sales in our school and and advertise in our schools newspaper. Once again, please contact us if you are interested in helping

Our group through "Operation Identification" will participate in a three-fold program that will involve: 1. Developing posters, flyers, etc. to make the community aware of the resources available to them in rescued animals, medical services (both emergency and continued care,) and wildlife game preserves. 2. Establishing a "Community Volunteer Day" at the local animal shelter to assist with a day of care for the animals and involving the community of the shelter's location, function, and services. 3. Press awareness involving the students participation at the shelter and mailing out 'thank-you' letters to those who assisted on the community involvement day. We will develop a follow-up system through students calling those services presented to discover if their services Increased/Decreased/ or Remained the Same after our initial start. Since the forming of our "Roots-and-Shoots" campaign, I rescued a baby squirrel that had its home destroyed through the falling of a tree after a storm. I raised the squirrel from a few days old throughout the year, and as we were wrapping up out school year, we returned "Oscar" the squirrel in the wild, as it should be. Our Roost-and-Shoots group kept up with Oscar's growth and progress, and celebrated as he was released into the wild. After a week, he seems to be thriving, yet does appreciate our little visits!

Our club will partner with associations that protect the wildlife, such as WWF and NKLA. Members will participate in fundraisers and volunteering at the local animal shelter, clean-ups, and more. We will bring up problems in the wildlife and try to be a part of the solution.

I will start my project with a presentation in one of my next German lessons and then I will hand out it to my biology and geography teacher. And so I hope to win many other interesting children in my school to spread the ideas of Jane Goodall! Perhaps I get a permission to collect money!!!
I wish me that chimpanzees can live in Gombe and in the rainforest. We need to plant more trees for chimpanzees! We must follow the example of Jane Goodall! Why do we destroy the habitat of our closest relatives? Now only 300.000 chimpanzees lived in the wild!!! SAVE THE CHIMPANZEES!!!!!

We will assist by making signs and posters. We will talk to our families and neighbors and spread the word (maybe even look for a Helping Hand). We have learned mapping skills on Google Maps. Working as a Team has taught us that when we put our minds and efforts to things, we CAN make them better and get the job done!

The students will create a folk art inspired clay sculpture or paintings of a chosen endangered animal. Prior to creating their clay sculptures, the students will learn all about endangered animals and possible solutions to save these animals by raising funds and donation them to the World Wild Life Fund, ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and Jane Goodall Institute. Each student will select one endangered animal to research through visits to our school library. In groups based on their chosen animal, students will work together to create a poster about their endangered animal; spreading awareness to their school and community. The students completed posters, paintings and clay sculptures will be available for sale in exchange for a donation at our school’s fundraising events. Proceeds from the fundraisers will be donated to the World Wild Life Fund and Jane Goodall Institute.

We raised money through a bake sale and a change jar to adopt a wildlife animal through the Defenders of Wildlife Foundation! In order for us to adopt this penguin we gradually collected change throughout a few weeks and at the end of February we hosted a bake sale to earn the rest of the money that is needed. We decided as a class we wanted to make baked goods and sell them throughout Once Upon A Time. Each wildlife adoption and gift is symbolic and your donation will be used where needed to help protect their wildlife and wild lands. Adopting this wildlife animal will be immediately put toward a great cause! With the money we raise as a classroom, we get our own personalized adoption certificate for Sprinkles, a penguin animal fact sheet, a wildlife activity book, and our own baby penguin to take care of in our classroom!

In the middle of 2014-2015 school year, Riverfield Roots & Shoots students researched and planned how to build a small chicken coop. They planned how to sell the eggs, what supplies and food the chickens would need, along with keeping them safe from birds of prey. The students presented their plan to the administration and faculty. The project was approved and the chicken coop was built. The students then measured a plot of barnyard land for the area for the chickens to roam, dug all the post holes, and fenced it in for the chicken coop and hens.
