This time, in our school trip, 5th graders went to RAINFER (Primates Rescue & Rehabilitation Center). Their main goal is to rescue and rehabilitate primates in need, coming from dreadful and illegal situations, such as circuses, zoos in terrible conditions or households where they are kept as pets.
5th graders participated in different workshops that allowed them to develop skills based on animal conservation in an active way. They also had time to reflect on human impact on the natural environment and food chains.
A unique experience to see rescued chimpanzees and different primates while learning to respect and protect the animals and their environment.
