Endangered Species Day at the ATL Botanical Gardens

On April 14th, the Georgia Geographic Alliance participated in Endangered Species Day at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The annual event focuses on promoting the conservation of animal and plant species who are facing population decline through educational outreach. GGA hosted a table that focused on fossils of extinct species, like mammoth teeth and gut stones from dinosaurs, and current endangered species, like brain coral. The table also included an activity to teach kids about Georgia’s many regions and how these regions lead to high diversity in species. By using coloring maps of Georgia, we were able to teach kids how different geologic periods in GA’s history and the current regions show us the history of extinct species and why Georgia has one of the highest numbers of endangered species in the country.
