Our organization representatives are going out to schools in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties to introduce school children to the island fox and its struggle for survival.
The island fox is a local California species and unique in the world. Its story includes the importance of balance in nature and is easily understood by children of all ages. Once children are aware of the fox's situation, they are eager to help and to take an empowered stance to help these endangered creatures.
We challenge the students in our Fox Ambassador Schools to find creative ways to help the island fox on three levels:
- by becoming an informed individual and learning about the island fox
- helping the fox directly through a project
- and reaching out in their community to increase public awareness
If your class or school is interested in making a difference and helping to save an endangered animal, contact Friends of the Island Fox, Inc. at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about becoming a Fox Ambassador School.
