We opened the presentation up completely to questions afterward. Immediately, students began rapid-firing questions at us, almost overwhelming our presenters with their enthusiasm. Afterward, one teacher told us, "Thank you so much for coming today. The children definitely learned a lot today. We're doing the ecology unit right now, so this fit right into our learning right now." We're always glad to help!
We also gathered a few hundred more drawings to add to our letters of activism. The pictures are simple, like the children who drew them, but somehow they are masterful in their purity. There's a very innocent longing for other creatures' well-being embodied in these drawings, little inspirational messages and powerful pleas to save the burrowing owls and save their habitats. I was most impressed with the children's caring words and passionate work. I can only hope some were inspired to join us in conserving this species, and that they will always remember our words.
