I wish that my students can learn about endangered species in Malibu and how this beach is protected and preserved by wildlife groups so that they can take this knowledge back to their own local beaches to help implement programs to clean up the water and sand so that it becomes a healthy environment for animals and people.
My project will include a day trip to the Malibu Tide pools where my students would have already researched what animals and wildlife are currently there. They will have researched the endangered animals and wildlife in that area so that when they visit the Malibu site, they will have some prior knowledge. While they are there, they will explore the tide pools and then write down their observations. They will survey the environment and write descriptions of what they see in terms of human interaction with the environment. Finally, when they return to their community in South Central Los Angeles, we will explore how to implement the practices in Malibu at our local beaches to improve upon the environment.
