Isabel Genn

THE STORY:

Hi!  My name is Isabel and I am an 8th grader at Manhattan School for Children, a K-8 public school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I am also part of the National Junior Honor Society (or NJHS), which is made up of a group of our schools’ eighth graders who meet the required standards in scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship and character. More specifically, we all have to take part in a service project to be honored in the ceremony later on in June, so I decided to help spearhead a fundraiser for a South American eco system tank for Manhattan School for Children that is being overseen by New York Sun Works, a non-profit organization that builds innovative science labs in urban schools. Also, a small group of fifth graders have completed the first tier by cleaning it and adding stones, plants, wood pieces, water and fish. Fauna, a pet store located on the Upper West Side, is helping to build the tank.

Did you know that 100 acres of rainforest are being destroyed each minute to accommodate living space for humans? I am very interested in the environment and the wildlife that lives in it. Also, I want to help to raise awareness among younger generations about endangered habitats, so I thought that helping to create a South American rainforest ecosystem at my school would be a very meaningful project for me.

When our ecosystem is completed (with the help of your generous donations, of course) we will add more fish on the bottom tier of the tank, as well as adding two more tiers with frogs on the middle tier, and (a) lizard(s) on the top tier, all co-existing like they would in their native habitat. It will hopefully be up and running at my school by the end of this school year when we graduate. This will be an important asset to my school because it will help to educate my younger peers (K-5) about the dynamic South American rainforest environment and how numerous different types of wildlife are able to live in harmony with each other.
