Sea versions of these fish have become a major plague in the North American Great Lakes after artificial canals allowed their entry during the early 20th century. They are considered an invasive species, have no natural enemies in the lakes and prey on many species of commercial value, such as lake trout.
In Ireland the Golden Eagle was thought to be nearly extinct for a little while, but now it is doing better. In central Europe, the Golden Eagle has had a huge decline. It now lives its life mostly in the Alps. The Golden Eagle population in the United States hasn’t dropped too much, but enough to be noticed.
Our goal was to foster a higher sense of awareness among the children and their families about the amount of plastic trash we generate. Our hopes are that children will learn early on about how harmful plastic is and they will grow up supporting change. And hopefully, they might even help their families do the same.
As expected, the number one item amongst all the trash was Single-Use Plastic Bags. The entire wheelbarrow was filled to capacity. The second largest group of trash is water/beverage bottles followed by food packaging i.e. fresh-fruit containers, pre-made salads and lunch trays etc. Lastly, were all the detergent bottles and yogurt cups etc.
Today was Carter and Olivia’s turn to meet with the two large Primary Student classrooms and they did this all on their own. Mrs. Margaret (Director of our school) picked them both up from their classrooms and escorted them over to speak with all the waiting students.
The tiger is the largest of the four “big cats”. The tiger is native to much of eastern and southern Asia, and is an apex predator. The larger tiger subspecies can reach up to 11 ft in total length, weighing up to 660 pounds, and having canines up to 4 inches long.
When we asked what we could do different to make their learning more enjoyable, the only request we received was that the Plastic Awareness event needs to last an entire month, or even be something that is focused on all year long. You gotta love our youth of today 😉
Plastic Awareness Week tasks all students and families to bring in their plastic trash every day to school. The plastic trash will be collected in a trailer located in the front of the school during the week so each child can watch and see the quick accumulation of plastic trash their small school amasses.
In 1981, 70,000 of its skins were exported to Germany alone. Although it appears to be plentiful in central regions, including Bolivia, where it is the second most common cat after the ocelot, it is considered to be endangered in regions such as southern Chile.
