For those who don’t know what EMA is, The Environmental and Marine Academy is a specialized academy for students interested in careers in green industry, sustainability, marine science, and more.
Throughout the day, as students walked around campus, they saw animal footprints drawn with chalk on the pavement, and signs of the different endangered species about what you could do to help preserve and protect them. One of EMA Academy’s main focuses was to emphasize the fact that anyone, and everyone, could in some way help protect endangered species.
Mrs. Rasmussen said “I think it’s super important that students understand their everyday actions can help endangered species.”
When asked her opinion on how the event went, senior, Raquel Friedmann responded with “I thought it was very successful, educational, and promoted endangered species awareness.”
