September-December We will learn about how we can safely coexist with coyotes in our community and on our school grounds. As an urban community, we come into contact with coyotes on our school grounds. We will make posters, signs, door hangers, and teach our community about what to do to be safe and to appreciate these beautiful animals. We will host a Town Hall meeting at our school and invite our community to learn from our student experts. We also hope to work with our preschool to help them know what to do in the event that they come in close proximity to coyotes.

Our projects goal is to come up with new ways to protect wild chimpanzees in their natural habitat. We will go into the history of chimpanzee conservation and whats happening nowadays. Through craft projects, they will share their ideas on new ways to help our closest cousins living in the wild.

We will plant an aromatic garden this summer. The location is a path that many schoolchildren use to walk to school each day. The hope is to have a beautiful surprise for everyone to see and enjoy when they return to school in September. We will add a hammock/swing between the two trees, eye catching trinkets, sparklies, painted rocks and more in the 'fairy garden' tradition.
Greece
The idea is to screen documentaries about animals and the environment. In order to reach more people and have a wider impact, the screenings will be free of charge for anyone who would like to attend. Ideally I would like to establish an annual screening of such films in Athens, Greece (through Jane Goodall’s R&S Greece) and call it “Environmental Film Day”.

What The Project Will Do Our project will expose children to slow healthy food. Our project will expose children to positive social interactions. Our project will demonstrate to young children the benefits of group work. Our project will teach young children that their food comes from the earth. Our project will reinforce the importance of children's connection to nature. How We Will Do It We will discuss and problem solve humane ways to keep the ground squirrels and other animals out of the vegetable gardens. We will make a map of the garden plotting the sun exposer of the different garden boxes throughout the day. We will research and determine which herbs and vegetables will grow best in which garden boxes. We will research native plants and incorporate several in the gardens.

When we were deciding how we wanted to help our local environment, one of the students (4 years old) said, "We use a lot of paper at school for drawing. I think we should plant a tree since paper comes from trees!" We decided that we would plant a tree on our playground as a way of saying "thank you" to the trees for providing paper and for allowing us to breathe clean air (which is especially important in big cities like NY!) I wanted the students to get experience with fundraising and working toward a goal. The students came up with a plan to have an Ice Cream Fundraiser and luckily for us, it was a beautiful, sunny day! We made over $300! This allowed us to purchase a Cherry Blossom Tree for our playground. Finally, I wanted the students to "get their hands dirty" and help plant the tree. On a rainy, New York day, the students worked hard to dig a hole for our new Cherry Blossom.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
First, I will try to get enough money to support the shelter. Since one Bosnian mark is equivalent to .60 of an American dollar, my goal is to get $10,000 by January 20th 2019, which is equal to 16760 Bosnian marks. I will get all of the legal contracts signed. Then, I will purchase the property that will become my shelter. My goal is to finish this up before the end of April, 2019. A few weeks into June, after renovating the bathroom, and making the area good for cats and dogs, I will then hire some workers. Mid- June, I will finally bring in a few cats. The minimum of cats is four, but for now, the maximum is 10. (This will help both me and the workers get used to the schedule.) Gradually, we will bring in more cats and dogs. Wew! So, yeah, that's my plan. I know it's really ambitious, and it will be hard, but I'm willing to at least try this out.

Every year we look forward to making these edible necklaces for the chimpanzees at the Chimps, Inc sanctuary in Bend, Oregon. We hope to increase our awareness of the problems with wild animals being used by the entertainment industry, drug companies, and being raised in people's homes. It feels good to bring some joy into these chimps lives. The necklaces are made with cherrios, dried fruit (figs, apples, two kinds of dates, raisins) and natural jute string. Before making the necklaces, we learned about the individual chimps at the sanctuary, as well as their distinctive personalities. They each have a sad story of abuse and neglect prior to arriving at Chimps, Inc. Sancturary.
