On Friday December 16th, Class 3 Joy had a wonderful day in Dublin Zoo to gather information for their CSPE Action Project on Animal Welfare.

The students completed a tour of the zoo and got to see all the animals the zoo had to offer, including the amur tiger, the giraffes and chimpanzees.

Afterwards the class completed a module in Zooardship with the educational officer in the zoo, in which they took part in a debate on the livelihood of endangered species.

The endangered species the class focused on was the Snow Leopard. The students found out about many animals are at risk due to habitat loss from deforestation and poaching. The class will now focus on creating awareness on animal welfare.
