Week 8

Researching Endangered Species!


We have spent some time researching some endangered animals from around the globe. Year 2 focused on Green Turtles, Indochinese Tigers and Orang-utans which are critically endangered.


We begun to realise why these animals were becoming endangered which has prompted us to become more environmentally friendly.


We were shocked to find out how many endangered animals were left in the wild and we were devastated to hear how their habitats were being destroyed. 


We wrote letters to animals charities to reassure them that we want to help with the conservation of animals.  


Indochinese Tigers: 1,500 left in the wild (endangered)

Green Turtles: 85,000 left in the wild (endangered)

Orang-utans: 14,600 left in the wild (critically endangered)
