Mike Farley is a teacher from Toronto, Ontario area. He has organized two virtual school tours for his students; one with Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary and another with Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary. Both experiences were different, and he will be discussing the different options as well as what he found works best!
With the current climate with COVID-19, this is a great oppertunity for educating the public and creating a different donation stream for your sanctuary.
