Bloomsdale Students Raise Awareness of Endangered Species

Students in Stacy Bell’s fourth-grade science classes at Bloomsdale Elementary studied endangered animals. Several of the students decided that a great way to raise awareness about these species would be to raise money and symbolically adopt an animal from the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF). In a little more than two weeks, the students raised $125 and were able to adopt five animals from WWF. They chose to adopt a bald eagle, a jaguar, a koala, a honeybee and a snow leopard. This organization’s mission is to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth. For more information, visit www.wwf.org. (Photo, information from the Ste.
