Teacher Ruthann Retterbush’s second grade class recently participated in Lion Country Safari’s “Christmas with the Chimps.” Students wrapped boxes that will be filled with treats to provide environmental enrichment for the chimps.
Lion Country Safari asked schools to participate in this program in order to provide the animals an opportunity to enhance their lifestyle.
Students will be watching the chimps open and investigate their gifts via a virtual field trip made possible by Palm Beach County’s Science Program partnering with Lion Country Safari. The students can’t wait to see the chimps open their presents.
