Campers will see and hold a different variety of animals each day, followed by research on their habitat, behavior and care.
Different species each day give summer camp students the opportunity to learn about the wildlife here in the US as well as other continents, and the choices that human beings have made to endanger or preserve wild animals . Students will see how a creative and interesting news story can raise awareness about endangered animals
