2001, we discovered four orphaned baby raccoons. One was on the ground
and three others were in the hollow of a giant maple tree. The mother
had been hit by a car while crossing the road just a few feet away.
We called the county wildlife agent who told us to bring them to their
facility. Before transporting the babies to the center, we videotaped
them with a Sony Digital 8 camera. Then we made a movie to share with
students and teachers around the world. The movie was made on an iMac
with iMovie. Click on the picture above to view the movie. Write
about what you see. Notice the heart shaped hole in the tree.
