Our school has a very strong environmental program and the cell phone campaign has been an annual event for many years. Funds raised from previous years have made it possible to attend environmental competitions such as Envirothon. We believe it is very important to raise awareness about the importance of maintaining species diversity and of keeping hazardous materials out of our landfills. Many people have seen gorillas at the zoo and are appalled to learn that they are being slaughtered to produce cell phones. Manmade technology should not take away from our natural environment. Students serve as ambassadors of awareness at our school and, as such, visit science classrooms to inform all students of this program. Additionally, students reach out to community leaders to engage a broader audience in this conversation. Help us save gorillas, donate your cell phone!
