Kangaroo visits students in Hazard

FROM LOUISIANA.

TO INTRODUCE KIDS TO SOME ANIMALS.

(ANGELA) (VO) KIDS HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE BIRDS, REPTILES, AND EVEN A KANGAROO! HANDLERS TAUGHT THE KIDS A LITTLE BIT ABOUT EACH ANIMAL.

AND THEN THEY HAD THE CHANCE TO ASK QUESTIONS.

FOLKS WITH BARN HILL PRESERVE SAY.

HAVING KIDS INTERACT WITH ANIMALS UP-CLOSE.

IS IMPORTANT.

(SOT UP FULL) Kaitlyn Seiler – Barn Hill Preserve – They see I'm touching the animals, I'm holding snakes.

I'm holding giant reptiles.

They aren't biting me, they aren't out to get me.

I think it helps kids develop a bigger appreciation for animals.

(VO) THE GROUP TRAVELS TO SCHOOLS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

FREE OF CHARGE.

THE KIDS CAN CHOOSE TO TAKE A PHOTO WITH AN ANIMAL.

FOR TEN DOLLARS.

(3-SHOT) THAT'S GOING TO DO IT FOR MOUNTAIN NEWS AT SIX.
