YORBA LINDA, Calif. (February 10, 2017) – On Tuesday, February 7th Heritage Oak Private Education, home of the Huskies, hosted a special assembly featuring wolves, rescued and rehabilitated for educational programs by the Apex Protection Agency.

One of the goals of the Apex Protection Project’s is to educate students on the wolves and wolfdogs with the dream of future generations living in a world where the wolf is protected and respected. This matches the fundamental teachings of Heritage Oak in regards to having respect for others.

During the assembly, students learned about the important role wolves play in keeping the ecosystem healthy and in balance. Negative myths surrounding wolves were also discussed and dispelled. At the end of the assembly, the wolves made their highly-anticipated appearance on the stage.

Heritage Oak’s Elementary Science Teacher Chhay Liv was the organizer of this special event. “I wanted the students to learn that a sense of community is important for the health of our planet and the beautiful and amazing creatures on it.  It is never too young learn that you and everything under the sun are part of this community,” explained Liv.
