Problem:  As the total human population of the earth increases it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain a sustainable society.

Problem:  Teaching children about environmental issues in the classroom tends to be too abstract to provide the kind of deep understanding necessary for retention of key ideas.

Solution:  Bringing live animals to the classroom provides an experiential learning experience that is exciting to kids and stimulates their interest while increasing retention.  The Road Raptors program not only brings student in direct contact with wildlife, but also has a ‘walk our talk’ comprehensiveness that shows kids the people putting on the program truly live and believe in its’ principles.

The following was reprinted from the website maintained by Audubon New York

ROAD RAPTORS PRESENTS A NEW 'SPIN' ON ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION CONGRESSWOMAN MCCARTHY, KEYSPAN FOUNDATION ANDAUDUBON NEW YORK UNVEIL NEW ADDITON TO SUCESSFUL ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGAM

UNIONDALE, NEW YORK — Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy and representatives from the KeySpan Foundation, Audubon New York and the Uniondale School District unveiled a new set of wheels and a new name for the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center's popular and successful raptor education program. Newly dubbed Road Raptors, the program, a fixture in many Long Island schools, has delivered a bird's eye view of nature to students and families all across Long Island and the boroughs for over a decade. To help support expansion of the program, the KeySpan Foundation is providing Audubon with a specially customized, environmentally friendly dual fuel "Raptor Mobile", and $30,000 in funding. The van was rolled out at Walnut Street Elementary School, kicking off a year-long partnership with the Uniondale School District.
