Our projects goal is to come up with new ways to protect wild chimpanzees in their natural habitat. We will go into the history of chimpanzee conservation and whats happening nowadays. Through craft projects, they will share their ideas on new ways to help our closest cousins living in the wild.

The idea is to screen documentaries about animals and the environment. In order to reach more people and have a wider impact, the screenings will be free of charge for anyone who would like to attend. Ideally I would like to establish an annual screening of such films in Athens, Greece (through Jane Goodall’s R&S Greece) and call it “Environmental Film Day”.

Every year we look forward to making these edible necklaces for the chimpanzees at the Chimps, Inc sanctuary in Bend, Oregon. We hope to increase our awareness of the problems with wild animals being used by the entertainment industry, drug companies, and being raised in people's homes. It feels good to bring some joy into these chimps lives. The necklaces are made with cherrios, dried fruit (figs, apples, two kinds of dates, raisins) and natural jute string. Before making the necklaces, we learned about the individual chimps at the sanctuary, as well as their distinctive personalities. They each have a sad story of abuse and neglect prior to arriving at Chimps, Inc. Sancturary.

Our project is helping the homeless animals in the shelters. By attending animal shelter events, one can simply ask for donations during the event that can be given to the animal shelter foundation. We also had a school wide drive to collect blankets, pillows, milk bone treats, and dog bowls. By helping with this event, our members helped to "drain the kennel" and attempted to make every animals dream come true (to have a home).

We are going to use Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics to create a ripple effect of positive environmental change.

1. We hung nest boxes on our school campus. 2. We created "Bird Watch Stations" on campus so our community can record the birds seen and then we'll put that data into the Ebirds.org website. 3. We created a public service announcement about why we should not feed the ducks and geese. 4. We learned from an expert from Audubon Alaska. 5. We went on a bird walk with Alaska Public Lands Information Center. 6. We celebrated World Migratory Bird Day with our school community.

Students ran and organized a bake sale with funds to benefit the Pikes Peak Humane Society. They also assembled birdhouses to be hung in the community.

We have contracted with Shred Nations for secured document shredding and recycling. We have contracted with Green Sheen for recycling latex paint. We have organized with the GMSN to have various booths onsite. And we have made all of the arrangements with the school to use the parking lot.

Children in our Title One School have little time outside and very few opportunities to interact with nature. We will collect a team of volunteers (teachers, administrators, students and families) to clean out the trash, weed and mow, purchase moveable parts to encourage creative play, purchase and post materials to enhance knowledge of nature, including; trees, plants, bugs, animals and birds. We will create rules and policy regarding upkeep, including; weeding, bird feeders, and rules respecting all living things. We will install trash and recycling containers, purchase a rain barrel to reuse water, we will secure a donors choose to purchase the materials to build a small fish pond and will include the person who does gardening in the city to help with the organic garden and its upkeep.

When ever we are at the beach I am going to get my family to collect garbage and remove it from the beach
