Classroom Book Project Supports Nature Conservation
We love stories like this. Four students from the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Education created a wonderfully inspiring book called What's Hiding Behind the Polar Bear? Illustrated with impressive artwork by Ottawa-area elementary students, the book contains endangered species profiles, activities and other information about wildlife. The students then sold copies and raised $875 to support our efforts on behalf of endangered species. Thank you!
Thank you Kaili, Sara, Jeannine and Caitlin!
