|Teachers join the Rainbow Wildlife Rescue - Educational programs are under development - Outdoor cameras needed to stream video from the animal habitats live into the classrooms - Laptop or netbook needed for recording video and images and classroom presentations.|
This year is starting out very promising! After gaining the 501(c)3 status from the IRS we are in the process of forming a board of directors/trustees. In addition we welcome our first Wildlife Assistant Rehabilitator and sub-permittee Loree Behymer who will be in charge of the squirrels this year.
The highlight of our educational program will be cameras installed in the animal enclosures streaming videos and images of different native wildlife species live into the classrooms. The kids can observe these animals throughout the day and collect data on them. This aligns with the state Science TEKS particularly with 5th grade and below.
The videos and images will be viewable to everybody on the internet through our Rainbow Wildlife Rescue website, including you, not only the classrooms which however are the number 1 priority. Here is an example of a live squirrel cam: http://lpyardcams.camstreams.com/
Please help us get "Wildlife in the Classroom" program into place.
