Animal Helpers badge

Girls will learn how marine animals can help us directly, like rescue dolphins, and indirectly, through science.  We’ll start in our laboratory classroom, where Girl  Scouts will conduct their own animal behavior experiment using hermit crabs and snails, and learn about the beneficial Horseshoe Crab by touching baby ones and examining microscope crab slides.  Girl Scouts will go seine fishing in Sandy Hook Bay as “field biologists” to observe our animal helpers first-hand.
