How is climate change affecting the bees?

Democratic Nominee votes

Thank you to everyone who voted on the survey and gave us feedback! We would like to explain that the reason that the survey was titled Democratic Nominee is because the only Republican running is president Donald Trump, and the Democrats are currently deciding on their candidate. Many of you decided to separately vote for him anyway, so we included it in the pie chart below. There were also many votes in the other section but they did not fit the theme of this survey and were off topic. We held a separate survey where students could make any comments […]

The Day Of Silence

Hello Students, This week is Black Lives Matter Week.

What is happening to the Arctic?

The place that was once known for its ice-covered land and its beautifully crafted glaciers is now melting away faster than we ever imagined. The Arctic is always covered in ice year-round, but when the winter season hits, it gets a temporary ice plain that covers its shores and stretches far out into the sea. (3)According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, that temporary ice is dying, becoming smaller and smaller each year, leaving animals short of their much-needed hunting and resting grounds. With the sea ice melting more each year some people wonder how much longer the […]

Why Wolves are Important to Yellowstone

Wolves do more for their forest environment than the average person might be aware of. They play a key role in keeping everything in order. When the wolf is removed, everything becomes chaos. This was what became clear in 1962, when the wolves in Yellowstone National Park were hunted into extinction. The role of wolves in Yellowstone are vital to the well-being in the park and the animals who inhabit it. When they were killed off, the health of the park decreased significantly. With the wolves gone, the elk had no competition and their population grew out of control. Everything […]

The Feelings/Emotions of Animals

Some people say animals have feelings, others say they don’t. Scientists around the world have done many studies attempting to learn whether or not animals have emotions, and if they do, how in depth are they? Scientists came to the conclusion that a variety of animals’ emotions are “Survival Circuits,” which are basic instincts that define animal reactions, similar to fear and hunger. They concluded, that animals have no emotions just from that simple idea. As time progressed however, people learned more about how animals’ minds work, and doubts became common.  Scientists began to think animals only feel what their […]
