Welcome back and Happy new year to everyone!
There was great excitement at the first Green schools committee meeting of 2014.
Based on our Biodiversity Green Code
‘Don’t let species go extinct, in this world we are all linked’
we decided to adopt an endangered species. An endangered animal is an animal which is not surviving in large numbers because humans are either killing too many of them or we are spoiling the places/habitats where those animals live.
We heard that Dublin Zoo do great work with conservation and protection of endangered animals so we decided to adopt an animal through them.
We had nine animals to choose from:
- West Lowland Gorilla
- Snow Leopard
- Californian Sea Lion
- Amur Tiger
- White Rhino
- Red Panda
We had a vote and the winner was……..
The Snow Leopard!
So stay tuned to our blog and keep an eye on the Green Schools noticeboard for information on our latest addition to the Green team.
