All of this research helps the scientists learn about habitats, ecosystems, climate change, and more. Because there are only 2 leaders, they need help. We set 100 traps today. When they do not have volunteers here, they have to do all the work by themselves! It was hard work for the 7 of us so I'm sure it's hard work for 2 people.
Here are some questions you may want to think about:
Would you crawl on the ground in the forest?
Would you pick up a mouse?
Would you touch animal poop?
Would you think it's interesting to learn about animals and how they really live?
|This is me picking grass for the mouse trap. It was cold!|
|This is what I was crawling through! You can see the pink tape tied to the tree. If you look at the bottom of the tree, you can see the mouse trap. The grass covering it helps to hide it and insulate it so the mice do not get too cold.|
