Today ICE has 330 students distributed from the 3rd to the 7th grade.
Teaching is based on collaborative values, as well as a curriculum that includes art teaching spaces, chess workshops and even Taekwondo.
For his part, Amado Martínez, taxidermist, herpetologist technologist and president of the Yarará Civil Society in Action, said that the idea is to bring animals closer to children so that they get to know them and can protect them.
He said that not all of them are dangerous or a threat, but each has its function in nature. The idea is that the boys know the animals and protect them.
He drew attention to the groups that today serve and rescue animals for the benefit of the native fauna.
Amado Martínez, president of the Yarará Civil Society in Action, said that the purpose of the exhibition held in the establishment was to reflect on respect and care for animals in general.
During the day, the Society was in charge of teaching the students about the dangerous and friendly animals. In addition, he emphasized: “we come to teach that the world is for everyone, not only for people, that is why we must respect the rest of the living people with whom we live.”
Most of the animals they work with from the Civil Society are “rescued and exotic from other places like boas, pythons, iguanas, among other reptiles,” said Martínez.
In this sense, he recalled that there are exotic animals in the house in a way that came from the United States, because they are calm animals that do not mess and eat a lot.
“We work with the Ministry of Ecology”, emphasizes Martínez. He even declared that today there are several agencies that are in charge of taking care of animals such as the Environmental Police, firefighters, among others.
“The new generations have a different attitude about animals,” said the defender, since he considers that young people have a different vision of taking care of these living beings, especially when it comes to food.
On the other hand, he referred to the awareness campaigns they carry out. “We gave material and information to go in and talk about extinct animals and the care that should be taken,” he explained.
Finally, Martínez insisted that the Civil Society seeks to convey the message to school students, transmitting the animals that are harmful and not, that are edible and not, demolishing myths and providing truthful information on the matter.
