Join the adventure of a lifetime and become a champion of conservation! From keeping the smallest animals to some of the largest, what makes a good pet? From “man’s best friend” to creating the rainforest in a box within our homes, we are driven to connect with nature. Make your own pollinator house and then as a class we’ll build a composting bin to observe throughout camp. Discuss how modern day video games could be used to help with conservation. Then we'll investigate animals such as: tigers, elephants, poison dart frogs, bushmasters, and Komodo dragons! We’ll weigh out the pros and cons of keeping animals in captivity versus in the wild. What's the impact on biodiversity? Does having captive species assist in sustaining species in the wild through breeding and education? And what can we do to ensure their survival for generations to come? These are just a few of the questions we will dive into during this fast-paced exploration!
