"Your presentation to our students, principals and board members this morning was outstanding! This was our first virtual tour and we were extremely impressed. I am a former elementary teacher and you did a superb job of getting the students involved in the tour, demonstrating enthusiasm, and giving them a strong knowledge base about wolves. In short…you were fantastic in your presentation and that is what made this virtual tour a great starting point for our school district."
-Tom Collins, superintendent, Hastings Public Schools

“The opportunity to learn and see directly through the use of videoconferencing was not only a ground-breaking experience, but allowed us to visit places that would normally be out of the question. Virtual field trips have opened a wide variety of opportunities for our students to explore. It was a wonderful experience!"
-School Age Care Coordinator, MN District #197

"Thank you so much for including us in the Wolf Ecology distance learning session. My students enjoyed the presentation, seeing the other class and especially seeing the wolves in their habitat. What an opportunity! I feel the distance learning sessions are very engaging for the students. Thank you for providing us with materials and a website to visit. I was able to share the website with the class by way of LCD projector. The background information helped the students to stay involved."
-Driftwood Middle School, Hollywood, Florida

"I would recommend the Wolf Ecology program to others in my district because it fits right in with our current science unit. Students remained engaged throughout the program. This was very appropriate for 5th grade science, and seeing and hearing live wolves is a great experience for students."
