Salt Lake City, UT: Eva Carlston, a residential treatment program for teen girls, regularly supports environmental causes by doing things such as volunteering with WasteWise, where they help teach others what and how to recycle. Recently, they have partnered with HawkWatch International to help them investigate and conserve vultures in the Horn of Africa. They have done this by contributing hours of help to HawkWatch's work, and recently, adopting a female vulture.
Eva Carlston students recently attended presentations by HawkWatch, and it got them excited about the cause. “I never knew birds, especially vultures, were so important to the ecosystem. They help recycle rid of dead things, and help prevent diseases from spreading,” one student commented. Another student noted, “I learned so much! Did you know that, unlike most other birds of prey, vultures are social creatures and do lots of things in large groups? And what you call a group of vultures changes depending on what they are doing? They are so cool!”
Eva Carlston is excited to support “nature’s clean-up crew.” And looks forward to following their bird's progress. Additionally, they will continue to look for other ways they can support environmental causes. In doing so, Eva Carlston is working to help their students find a variety of passions in life and introduce them to things they may not have previously considered.
