The Eyes of the Wild @ The Early School of Temple B'nai Abraham

The Eyes of the Wild @ The Early School of Temple B'nai Abraham

A fennec fox , a morning dove, a frisky frog , a white ferret…. one would think you were at a local zoo, but it was at a recent educational presentation by “Eyes of the Wild” at The Early School of Temple B’nai Abraham that this menagerie of unusual animals made an appearance. When abandoned animals need new homes,  Eyes of the Wild Center, under the leadership of Travis W. Gale and Wallaby Tales, LLC , takes them in, cares for them, protects them and houses them in private facilities in rural Warren County, NJ where they have room to run and play. The “Animal Friends” travel -out educational wildlife program, with Travis Gales, gave the Early School students the opportunity to meet and greet and learn about unusual mammals, birds and reptiles including a fascinating fennec fox.  Travis Gales, the director,  has a Bachelor of Science in Biology/Education from the College of New Jersey. He worked as an Environmental educator for Monmouth County Parks and as an instructor/program developer for Mad Science for 2 years. His love for animals led to him working as a field biologist, radio tracking New Jersey Timber Rattlesnakes. He conducted the first radio tracking program of New Jersey baby Pine Snakes in the Pine Barrens. His commitment to education continued when he became a Special Education/Science/ESL instructor for the New Egypt Schools. In 2006, Travis bought the Eyes of the Wild Center in Washington, New Jersey in the heart of Warren County, where he encouraged all that passed through the Center doors to share his vision to LEAP (Learn, Enjoy, Advocate and Protect) into wildlife.  

For information about the Early School and its programs, (non- members most welcome to enroll),  please contact Debbie Aronson Ziering, Director of Early Childhood Education at 973-994-7016  or e-mail dziering@tbanj.org. Visit the website at www.tbanj.org/the-early-school

Step Right Up

Let’s make America the Greatest Show on Earth Again.

 

I was very sad to learn that after 146 years of big-top entertainment the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is folding its tent and leaving town.

 

This comes a year after the circus, due to mounting pressures from animal rights activists, got rid of the elephants.

 

It is not really ...
