I decided to take on this project because after my previous work at the facility others reached out to me and expressed an interest in helping out at the rescue habitat.
We brought in trash bags, gloves, and snake-grabbers and we cleaned up all around the school. We filled 3 large bags with trash!
Trash collecting field trips, tree planting field trips, raise money for organisations
As the official young reporter for Bear essentials newspaper (publication in Phoenix metro areas and Tucson, Arizona) http://bearessentialnews.com/, I will draw and color a Vaquita to illustrate the beautiful porpoise for my readers. I will research and write an article about the marine porpoise and include details of the endangered species, its habitat and reasons for its near extinction status. I will review my article and illustration with the Bear Essential News editors and then publish it.
Our Middle School Art Department purchases handmade paper beads that were made by people in Uganda Africa. The income from the beads helps the people in Uganda provide for their families. We will use the paper beads to made bracelets, necklaces, and key chains to sell to our friends, neighbors, family members, etc. Them money we raise from our jewelry sales is donated to the CSWCT to help support the Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. Through this project we are able to help make a difference for the people in Uganda and for the plight of the chimpanzees.
Cleaning beaches on every weekend,planting trees and flowers on the areas where we will be allowed to do so during the weekends and conducting seminars at the schools on how to preserve the environment through our club.
Students will come up with solutions for improving wildlife habitat on this property and solving some of the issues related to wildlife. This will include coming up with proposals for how to manage the beaver dams that are causing flooding issues in the close upstream neighborhood, managing invasive species, and putting in bird boxes to increase the bird habitat on the property. First, we will have an identification stage where students identify some of these problems. Then, there will be a planning stage where students create proposals for action. Then there will be the implementation stage where students implement the projects they have planned. Last, there will be a community outreach stage where students present their projects to the community.
Feeding, cleaning and Raptor aviary maintenance at Wild At Heart- Raptors (rescue, rehabilitation and release center for birds of prey.)
Wild At Heart is a rescue, rehabilitation and release center for birds of prey. Its primary purpose is to rescue injured owls, hawks, falcons and eagles; rehabilitate them; and, ultimately, release them back into the wild. Its guiding mission is to do what is in the best interest of these magnificent birds. Wild At Heart is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We, and our birds, are volunteer and donation supported. At Wild At Heart we do all the following: Rescue, rehabilitate, and release birds of prey which have been injured or orphaned. Relocate displaced burrowing owls. Manage species recovery programs. Manage habitat enhancement projects. Provide educational presentations. I plan to collect family and friends to form a group. Our group will travel to Wild At Heart Raptors rescue center to help clean the habitat, feed the birds and maintain the aviaries. This will help the birds of prey that have been rescued to have a safe nesting place to recover from their injuries. The chicks and adult owls have pellets in the aviaries and we plan to clean the aviaries with dry brooms and then with water hose. We plan to trim any bushes and assist with hauling landscape debris. We will help birds needing to be fed and relocated to other aviaries. Our goal is to make the rescue habitat for raptors a safe and clean environment and nesting place for healing and recovery.
This project will hopefully inspire the general public to consider the impact of their actions as well as reduce their pollution into the nearby environment.
Me and Nayoun from S. Korea will be creating an international, online video database with videos from projects from all over the world, so anyone can have access and watch them. You can inspire and be inspired! Anyone can send their video as long as it shows a project done by them, regarding animals, people or the environment. In order for your video to be featured, you must plant a tree and record it at the end of the video! In that way, more trees will be planted and everyone will benefit from this action!
