Thank you to the grade 1 and 2 students from Algonquin P.S. for fundraising and attending an education workshop at Wild at Heart yesterday! The students learned about turtle shell repair with a craft, did a scavenger hunt in our pollinator garden, and saw photos and videos of the hundreds of animals we treat each year during our presentation.
Above: students working on their turtle shell repair crafts. After learning about the circumstances that turtles are admitted to Wild at Heart (shell injuries from roadside collisions) and seeing how our veterinarian repairs their shells, students made their own turtles and “repaired” their shells with band-aids.
