All Saints Students Promote Wildlife Conservation Awareness
Posted on 09/28/2016

The eighth-grade students at All Saints Regional Catholic School are putting their kind hearts to work!   After learning that 96 African elephants are slaughtered each day by poachers who are looking to benefit from illegal trafficking of ivory, the students looked for ways to help.  They discovered that the Wildlife Conservation Society is trying to bring public awareness to the problem by creating a display of 35,000 origami elephants.  Touched by the heart-breaking news that elephants -- loving, compassionate creatures -- have drastically declined in population during the last few decades due to this illegal work, the students began folding right away.  Their origami elephants are being sent to the Wildlife Conservation Society.  Although small in number, this eighth-grade class realizes that every bit helps!
