Adopt a whale challenge…

On Monday I got to spend some time at the Vancouver Aquarium.   During my visit I saw many high school students completing a scavenger hunt.   I realized that my students woud never get an opportunity as a class to visit the aquarium and decided to try and find a way to bring the Vancouver Aquarium into our class.   As a result I learned about their Adopt  a wild killer whale program as a way to raise research money.   I therefore challenge my classes to raise enough money to adopt a killer whale before the begining of May.
