Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, May 19, 2010 9B pinion O M. Kate West Chester Editor chesternews@plumasnews.com Chester High School stu- dents got up close and person- al with birds, reptiles and bugs from countries on the other half of the globe recently, in a special all- school assembly titled Wonders of the Rainforest. The Associated Student Body paid for the assembly, according to Principal Scott Cory "They wanted an assembly that was fun and educational, something besides a rally," he said. "They researched this program on their own and made it happen - Hats of to them!" Wildlife educator Nicole Rast first showed off a blue and gold macaw. She shared interesting facts and said the macaw is a member of the parrot family and that it's col- oring is camouflage. She talked about its large black beak and said it has two purposes; to test the stability of a potential perch and to break open nuts. She also said they can live 60-80 years in the wild, and as a pet with good care, can live up to 100 years. Another hit with the stu- dents was Charlie the Cockatoo. Rast said these birds come in 21 varieties and are one of the few animals that are naturally white and not considered to be abnor- malities or mutations like albinos. Other creatures Shared during the assembly included lizards, monster sized igua- nas and beetles from Indonesia, Australia, South and Central America. Chester High School freshman Morgan Strate, during a rainfor- est assembly, shares with fellow students a Blue Tongue Skint from Indonesia. Photo by M. Kate West C.
