The primary aim of this activity was to study the factors leading to the extinction of animals and the reasons for the animals becoming threatened, endangered or extinct and how it affects the recent threats of Climate Change.
At the end of the activity, the students understood the characteristics of wildlife and the environment they lived in, evaluated the reasons for the extinction of wild animals and realized the importance of protecting wildlife.
It was an enriching program which started with the introduction of both the schools by each one of the students and exchanging the working culture and special practices done in both the schools. The students performed well and presented the reasons for the animals to become endangered.
