This month Aurora Day School high school classes were generously gifted with a free trip to the Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary, which is the largest reptile sanctuary in the United States. Students had the opportunity to learn about animals common in Arizona, as well as some not-so-common animals. Our students learned about the dangers of keeping exotic pets, and all of the difficult work that goes into caring for these often large and potentially harmful creatures. Students also learned about the importance of the sanctuary’s work in promoting the conservation and preservation of native and non-native reptiles through education, rehabilitation, rescue, and relocation.
