In Florida, we have a great deal of wildlife. Educating students in school is probably the best way we have of dealing with this at an elementary level. We have a list of endangered species that, if harmed, comes with a hefty fine.
The Brown Pelican was one of our endangered species when I taught elementary school. Students would go home and tell their parents.There is also a monetary penalty if anyone is caught intentionally interferring with the Brown Pelican.
