The Environmental Science merit badge includes a section about endangered species (req 3.e); Troop 60’s ASPL led the Troop through his presentation about the Leatherback Turtle, which is currently endangered, describing its habitat, why it’s endangered, and the recovery efforts in practice today.
Then, he broke the Scouts into small groups and assigned each an endangered animal that had recovered from endangered status, giving each group research materials so they could prepare a 100-word presentation describing the species, its endangered status, and how its population recovered.
Each Scout then gave their informative and entertaining presentations!
Note for OA members: Saturday is the OA Service Day and crawfish boil up at Kinsey. Hope you can make it!
