Colleen Carter

Colleen Carter, a biology teacher at Richelieu Valley Regional High School in McMasterville, Quebec, persuaded Jane Goodall to come to town to speak about her work with chimpanzees. Ms. Goodall came to the school because she was impressed with its ecological activities. Ms. Carter organized an ecological centre so students can plant trees, study pollination, monitor ultraviolet radiation and track the progress of the zebra mussel up the nearby Richelieu River. Her class even sponsored six whales.
