On May 11, 2006, Sean Edwards of the Arlington, Texas Field Office offered several presentations at Fort Worth’s Applied Learning Academy to seventh and eighth-grade students.  This coincided with the recently Senate-approved Endangered Species Day which designates May 11 of each year to “encourage the people of the United States to become educated about, and aware of, threats to species, success stories in species recovery, and the opportunity to promote species conservation worldwide.”  The students were given an understanding of the Service’s Endangered Species Program, a general emphasis on the importance of sharing the world’s resources with other living things, and suggestions on how they might participate in conservation.  The presentations concluded with a question and answer session as numerous artifacts were passed around and discussed.
