Wild times at Independence

March 23, 2011

Independence Elementary students giggled as Rascal, a capuchin monkey, hugged Mike Kohlrieser, the Understanding Wildlife host.

Kohlrieser reached into his pocket and pulled out another grape for Rascal and the students and teachers smiled.

Kohlrieser stopped by the school on Friday to educate the students about the rainforest along with animals and plants. He also shared how they can save them from disappearing - reduce, reuse and recyle.

“What happens around the world will affect us,” he said.
