FALLBROOK – The Monserate Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution chose a conservation project this year that was close to the hearts of many members, they said. They chose the elephants at the San Diego Safari Park as their project and began raising money for these endangered animals.

Two baby elephants were born at the Safari Park, a male named Zuli and a female named Kaia, and they were the motivation needed to achieve their goal of $1,000.

The Monserate Chapter's partner school, the Fallbrook STEM Academy, heard about the project to raise money for the endangered elephants and asked if they could help, chapter officials said. The elementary school students raised $900 in about a month. The students also learned about what it meant to have an animal on the endangered species list.
