Grade 4 and 5 students in Aylesford, NS, at St Mary’s transformed into citizen scientists with their Go Wild projects, getting out into the field to collect scientific data, helping to locate at-risk turtles with a local conservation group. Using radio telemetry, students were given the opportunity to learn how to use the receive and antennae to track tagged turtles. Through this project, students learned how they can directly help support local wildlife conservation initiatives as well as educate others.
