Volume 76 - April - May 2007
Hello to all TENAN/TESAN past participants,
We are writing this newsletter with mixed feelings. We have had to make a very difficult decision. We have taken a close look at our own personal responsibilities both with home and our jobs as school teachers, and we have also looked at how active TENAN and TESAN have been of late and realize that, at least for the present time, we must close TENAN and TESAN to new participants. We will, however, continue to maintain the website and have it online for use as a resource and information about endangered animals of the world.
If, in the future, we feel that we have time to reopen TENAN/TESAN to new participants, we will let everyone know here on the main page of TENAN/TESAN and also on Global SchoolNet's project registry.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank all of our past participants for making TENAN and TESAN successful projects. We could not have done what we did without you! Thank you so much!
We do want everyone to also realize that, we tried as much as we could to update TENAN and TESAN as much as we could, however, some of the reports on these two projects are getting close to ten years old, which means that the information found on some of these reports will not be accurate. Your best bet on current information about endangered animals of the world is to go to organization websites such as World Wildlife Fund  and National Wildlife Federation for the latest on the status of these animals.
Again, it is with heavy hearts we say that we must discontinue the active hosting of TENAN and TESAN. They have both had long and successful histories, and in many ways, were ground-breakers in online collaborative website projects.  We both had a wonderful time hosting them and we hope you enjoyed being a part of them.
We wish you all the best in all you do for animals all over the world, and, once more, Remember this...

That is all for now. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail us at:  Until next time, remember this:
