I am a student volunteer at the LA Zoo and a group of us have put together a club. Our project is on Butterflies, enrichment toys for the animals at the zoo, and a book share.

The Problem

My wish for this project is to further teach the public in this industrial environment the benefits of having a book share at the Los Angeles zoo. As well as teach the visitors about the enrichment toys for the animals at the zoo and teach the younger kids about how butterflies grow from a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly. Me and most of the student volunteers will be raising some butterflies and then we will release them in one of the new beautiful gardens.

Our Plan

My project will address the issue of reusing things to make enjoyable toys for animals as well as making a book share at the zoo that the visitors can donate books as well as take and read while at zoo. My project will also include raising butterflies and teaching the public about how the grow, benefit the environment, and mainly educate them about the importance of butterflies as well as what types of plants you can plant in your garden to help them and provide a home for them. I am in the student volunteer at the LA Zoo so I will be achieving this project with some of the other student volunteers. I will do this by asking for donations of books from the other student volunteers and my friends at school.
