Speaker from U.S. Fish & Wildlife, Endangered Species Division

Mrs. Green is a wildlife biologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife. She spent most of the day at Barrett presenting to Kindergarten and Fourth grade students. Mrs. Green showed how biologists attach radio transmitters to animals to learn more about them. This information helps the biologists protect the endangered species. She explained that what she learned in school is very important to her job. She must read scientific articles and write reports. She also has to keep notes when she is out in the field. Mrs. Green showed us items that had been made from endangered species that had been taken away from people. Mrs. Green brought bookmarks, stickers, and temporary tatoos for the students. Thanks Mrs. Green!
