5 youth petting a dog

Learn more about a certain species of animal that typically has interactions with people (such as pets or livestock). You don’t need to own an animal for this project. 

What can you do?

In the exploring animals project, you can work with an adult guide to learn the basics of animal science:

  • Animal breeds
  • What animals need to stay healthy
  • Things that animals do
  • Stages of life
  • Pet safety
  • Much more!

These are just some of the many ways you can participate in this project.
