Education and Outreach

School Outreach - students at school

Tank and his handler love to educate the public about the importance of preventing the introduction and spread of invasive species.  Between training and conducting inspections, they give demonstrations to the general public, school kids, and business professionals.

If you go to school in Santa Clara County and think your class would like to see a presentation by Tank, have your teacher send us an e-mail at: [email protected]
