Endangered and Extinct Animals!

The Loneliest Animals --Poor George

We have learned about a lot of animals this year. We were really touched by the story of Lonesome George, a turtle who was the last of his species. We read an article about him and watched a video. We are learning so many things about endangered and extinct animals. We are really forming great opinions about animals in the wild and animals in zoos.

Galapagos Tortoise Lonesome George Dies

Born Free

Our study of endangered animals and zoos has led us to get to know many stories about animals. One we really love is the story of Elsa, a cub raised by Joy and George Adamson. A movie was made about them a long time ago and we just came across a documentary about them and the link is below. Watch and see if you fall in love with Elsa too!
