Halloween came with a special treat this year for third graders at the Julian Curtiss School, who were paid a visit by Chris Evers, founder of Animal Embassy, an organization dedicated to animal-rescue and environmental and conservation education.

This in-school trip aligned with the GPS transdisciplinary unit which focuses expressly on animal adaptations.

Mr. Evers brought along with him a variety of animals including a chinchilla, a red-eyed tree frog, a sinoloan milk snake and an alligator snapping turtle. The purpose of Mr. Evers’ visit was to educate the students on the amazing adaptive abilities used by animals to survive in their habitat, and students delighted in this special opportunity to learn about and interact with the adopted animals, the school said.

Mr. Evers’ visit served as an inspirational lesson on the importance of saving and rehabilitating discarded and abused animals.
