Capture their hearts, capture their minds…
The essence of awareness, appreciation, and concern for fish and wildlife begins at the grass roots in the hearts and minds of children. An aquarium in the classroom will touch the senses of children for all of their lives, allowing them to experience the beauty, love, and joy that observing fish brings, and offering them the opportunity to feel pride in the responsibility of caring for the tank and its inhabitants. It is well documented that aquariums in the classroom bring grades and attendance up and keep young people in school.
Whether you are a teacher or parent, please consider an aquarium in your classroom and bringing awareness to our youth of the importance of preserving natural habitats and conservation priority fishes and other wildlife.
You will have captured their hearts, and therefore their minds.
