Science students in A.P. biology and zoology had the unique opportunity to get up close to the animals they are studying on a trip to Project Survival's Cat Haven, May 4. Although the temperature was reaching the high 90’s, the students enjoyed the opportunity to explore nature outside of the classroom. Cat Haven is similar to a animal sanctuary, but specializes in education and the preservation of wild cats. They also help raise funds for conservation efforts to save endangered cats. The president of Project Survival’s Cat Haven, Wendy DeVos, believes it is important to save cats before they become extinct. “A lot of people come here thinking it’s just a sanctuary for abused and abandoned cats, but this place really focus on trying to help what’s happening in the wild and to help different cat species survive in the wild,” DeVos said. “We try to send money to conservations. About one third of our income we try to designate for that, that’s what I want people to know, that we have a great education program and that’s important to take care of God’s creatures.” After getting off of the bus, students were brought into a room where they were taught how to identify different animals by examining their skulls. Students were also taught how different cats used different abilities to stalk their prey or avoid being eaten by other animals.
