Endangered Species

I was lucky enough to witness a pod of Humpback Whales  bubble netting,  while on vacation in Alaska. It was a once in a life time experience! It saddens me to think that  it's possible that these magnificent creatures might not exist a few years from now, so I was inspired to create a selection of Endangered  species projects to help enlighten our children on their plight, and steps we can take to help ensure that they will be around for years to come. I will continue to add more! On the bottom of this web page you will find links to some fascinating and very educational websites, they helped me out while researching these projects.
