Every Web site we link to was visited by our team to make sure it's appropriate for kids. But we don't monitor or control these sites and they may change. In addition, many of these sites may have links to other sites which we haven't reviewed.
In Hoot, Roy, Beatrice, and Mullet Fingers work to protect the endangered Burrowing Owls. Choose an issue you feel strongly about, like recycling, pollution, or coastal and marine issues such as soil erosion as the subject for your letter.
