This classroom of Fifth Graders, led by Mrs. Cornelius at Carl Schurz Elementary in New Braunfels, Texas, put together an amazing collection of quotations about why trees and rainforests are important and should be protected! We paired their inspirational quotes with photos of some of the special rainforest animals who have received help from our rescue center or sanctuary. We are so impressed by the thoughtfulness and passion of these kids, and the teacher who taught and inspired them!

Six-year-old Clark and four-year-old Ruth hosted a plant sale to benefit sloths. The siblings raised $172 at their plant stand and donated all proceeds to Kids Saving the Rainforest.
Clark is a budding conservationist who loves sloths. He is in first grade in Houston, Texas and attends Travis Elementary school virtually. During the extra time at home, he and his sister have enjoyed gardening. They propagated dozens of plants and nurtured them for this project.
Clark and Ruth invited family, classmates, teachers, and neighbors to their outdoor, socially distanced plant stand. The spring plant sale for the sloths couldn’t have come at a better time, as many in Houston lost plants during the historic freeze this winter. Patrons were excited to replenish their gardens, while supporting the important work of Kids Saving the Rainforest.
