Mr. Liebler from Oakland CA is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

East Oakland to Thailand for Conservation Projects!

Help me give my students from Oakland a chance to travel to Southeast Asia to immerse themselves in a different culture while engaging in hands on STEM projects related to animal conservation.

My Students

Our high school students are some of the most resilient and creative critical thinkers I have encountered. Despite countless challenges that come with growing up in an urban area beset by violence and issues related to poverty they continue to rise up. My students have used their assets and belief in civic duty to engage with their community, challenge injustice and ultimately to bring about positive change.

These kids have great senses of humor in the face of life's most difficult challenges.

They have been learning about environmental injustice and conservation efforts in both America and around the world. They have learned to see problems as opportunities for action and are exact type of young people that will take advantage of a good opportunity.

My Project

This trip will make a difference in our students lives because they will be working with different Non Governmental Organizations that focus on environmental sciences through conservation. Students will get training from the Oakland Zoo prior to journeying to Southeast Asia where they will work on elephant conservation and marine biology conservation projects. We will also work with a high school in Malaysia on a gibbon monkey conservation project.

This trip will change lives!

My students will be going on a trip of a lifetime to explore new cultures and people while furthering their STEM education in a completely foreign setting. This trip will expand the horizon of possibility for many of my students, some of who have never left the state.
