The Swan Hills Grades 1 to 6 students enjoyed an interaction presentation by Earth Ranger Keisha and Earth Ranger Chris yesterday.
The Earth Rangers School Assembly is a dynamic and interactive presentation. Through the power of live animal demonstrations and positive, science-based information, the program educated students about the threats facing animals and the environment, highlights real conservation initiatives across Canada, and motivates them to want to get involved. The assembly highlighted amazing animals and their superpowers - thus explaining the importance of biodiversity and how animals' unique adaptations allow them to thrive in their specific ecosystems. The presentation provided students with tangible ways they can help protect these ecosystems and show the big collective impact small, everyday actions can have.
Our students met live animals ‘Blue’ (a Savannah Monitor) and ‘Nacho’ (aCurl-crested Aracari (from the Toucan family).
A huge thank you to Pembina for sponsoring this educational experience for our students!
