One of the first things we did in 2021 was to create an online presentation for Operation Wildlife. Under the auspices of 2020-2021 Assistance League of Hawaii Marketing Chair Gerri Migita, she assembled a talented team of members and community volunteers to come up with an all new video presentation which was presented for the first time, entirely online via our website and YouTube.
The revised slide presentation was ready for 2021’s Action Week for February. In an article appearing in the March membership newsletter, Gerri wrote:
“This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, Assistance League of Hawaii’s Marketing Team created and produced an educational slide show presentation for Action Week.
The slide show helped distance learning students as well as those doing face-to-face, in-class instruction to equally learn what they can do to help Hawaii’s environment. The presentation focused on sustaining Hawaii’s environment to save the endangered endemic animals and plants from going extinct.
Letters were sent to schools with agreements with Assistance League of Hawaii around the State inviting them to connect to our website for the slide presentation “Sustaining Hawaii’s Environment for Your Future”. We also selected a book, “What a Waste” to give to schools that participated and returned surveys to us. There are also supporting worksheets and evaluations for teachers to use in their classes.
The video was uploaded onto YouTube and embedded to a specially created Assistance League Hawaii webpage. It was made available for viewing starting February 15. It will be available for public viewing through the end of the school year.”
The video appears at the bottom of this post.
For 2022, the Operation Wildlife Committee is putting together a new slideshow which will be shared with students around Oahu.
