In reality, every show we do is Environmental Education, but the ones listed here are designed to focus on habitats, the environment and how animals fit into their world a little bit more than some of the others.
Endangered Species--Focusing on a pairing of live with non-live animals, exs. The White Rhino and the White Throat Monitor, Jaguar and Anaconda,Bear and Alligator, Panda And Python, Sharka and Puffer Fish. This program is less of a stretch for us than you may think. Each set of animals includes one live animal from our group of rescued animals, (over 300 of them.) And the matching larger animals are all creatures that no one could bring to any school! We just matched up some of the greatest animals on Earth, from a few very significant habitats, and put in a cohabitant reptile or fish. From our way of looking at the world, all animals are endangered, whether an international organization says they are or not.
Tropical Rainforest--School Assembly seeks to bring an understanding and even an affection for the animals of that live there in a small effort to keep the magnificent habitats alive. The Tropical Rainforest Ecosystem is perhaps THE most interesting on Earth. These forests are filled with amazing animal species using adaptions to survive that are astonishing to learn about, yet humans are quickly, STILL, destroying them.
Tropical Rainforest -Savanna-- School Assembly is a classic habitat comparison of the forest with the grassland. But the rainforest is a habitat in 3 dimensions, stretching 60 feet to the sky and the savanna or velt, has few trees so it has only 2 dimensions. Or does it?
The swamps of the Southeastern US and the Llanos of Venezuela & Columbia and both habitats abundantly filled with diverse species of animals. The Cypress Swamp – Llanos school assembly compares and contrasts them for what they are and the creatures that make them home. Swamps, whether in Venezuela or Florida, cast a sinister shadow in the imaginations of many. Perhaps its partly because of the animals that live there? They are dominated by reptiles!
Environmental Education can be practiced and taught from your NJ backyard in the Great Swamp, to the Australian coastal Coral Reef. And this pairing is going to extremes to prove it, but there are odd, unlooked for, similarities in the habits of some of the animals. For instance the snapping turtle walks over land to get to new ponds and lakes to look for fresh prey, so the bamboo shark hunts through different sections of reef. All animals of both habitats have senses keenly adapted to deal with their particular problems and needs.
The NJ Clean Communities in Our Yards, Woods and Fields Program offers an unrivaled number of local creatures to choose from while still staying on the topic of pollution reduction. We will bring 7 of these 15! live animals and artifacts of two others that live in our collective backyards.
