Description

Class Experience

-Understand the basic information about a species and what has caused them to be endangered
-Find a greater appreciation for our natural world and fellow species
-Give actionable steps that children can take that want to make a difference NOW
I've been around animals my entire life and have worked with them professionally 95% of my adult life.  I was previously a Registered Veterinary Technician (Animal Nurse) for 10 years and I also have degrees in Zoo Keeping, Animal Training, and Wildlife Education from America's Teaching Zoo at Moorpark College.  I've worked at Zoos, was the Lead Supervisor of a Zoo Day Camp for children and I also founded a non-profit organization that provided hands-on animal education programs.  Teaching children and families about the animals and planet is truly my passion!
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class we discuss the reason animals are endangered which is almost always the result of human habits and activities on the planet. This can evoke strong emotions for some children (it's ok... it does for me too).  
Depending on the animal of the week we do occasionally discuss adaptations and evolution of animal species.  All information in this class is science-based.
We regularly discuss the need for animals to be able to find each other in nature for breeding purposes.  I do not go into any details about how animals breed.  I do discuss that they need to find each other, the impacts on populations when they can't, and the various reasons that cause them to not find each other.
