1 I think we can find pink river dolphins in the Amazon River. They are in danger because of water pollution and they get caught in fishermen’s nets.
2 I think we can find Cross River gorillas in Cameroon. They are in danger because of hunters who kill them for their meat and because deforestation destroys their natural habitat.
3 I think we can find loggerhead sea turtles in the Mediterranean Sea. They are in danger because people damage their nests and because they mistake rubbish for food.

Mark felt frightened because he heard and saw a tiger near him.
Holly felt shocked because she saw a dead seabird caught in a fishing net.
Jess felt excited because she saw many colourful fish and swam with sea lions.
Hayley was part of an observation team carrying out research on dolphins. She recorded new births and checked the babies.
Ryan tracked gorillas in the rainforests, so that he could learn more about their behaviour and living conditions. He also educated the locals about deforestation and suggested alternatives to cutting down forests for farming.
Mary helped out with a turtle conservation project. She worked with a team and did a survey of nests and eggs. She also patrolled the beach and told tourists about the turtles.
I would choose a working holiday helping animal conservation. I think it would be a great opportunity to do something good for endangered animals. I would like to make a difference to the world we live in as I am concerned about worldwide problems.
