CLARK–Second grade students at St Agnes School in Clark have “adopted” a trio of cubs. After studying about five of the many endangered animals, the students wanted a way to help these animals. During the month of February, the children were able to collect $50 and send it to the World Wildlife Fund. The class’ trio features a tiger cub, a snow leopard cub and a cheetah cub. These large cats are threatened by habitat loss, as well as hunting, poaching, and diminished food supply. WWF is working to prevent the world’s remaining wild cat populations from further decline. The class is following the progress of “their” cubs on a WWF website. Pictured above are Mrs. Martinez, her students and the plush trio of cubs. (Photo by Laura Wiese/St. Agnes School)
