Community Outreach Summary
I went on the Black footed ferret field trip which was an overnight trip near flagstaff. During this trip mygroup and I searched for a much endangered species and were tasked with capturing one from the wild.The purpose for this was to check their health and also to put a microchip so that scientists know wherethey are at. I joined the project because it seemed like a fun and interesting thing to do. This helped thecommunity because we are helping an endangered species come back from near extinction. Learningmore about science is important because it helps explain why things happen the way they do. I felt greatafter doing this project because it took several hours just to spot one and then catching it made theexperience even better.
