Brother Martin High School is host to the Aquaculture and Herpetology Club, an incredibly fun and unique club that teaches students responsibility, aquaculture and herpetology (of course), and care for God's creatures. Recently, club representatives including students and Mr. Barbara and Ms. Tucker, club moderators, visited St. Pius X Catholic school. There, they presented several creatures, sharing interesting facts and care information with the students of St. Piux X.
The Aquaculture and Herpetology Club regularly displays several creatures during the Brother Martin Open House. This coming fall, the club plans to visit several other primary schools in order to continue to share their love for God's creatures. The club was created four years ago by Mr. Barbara and two members and has since grown to fifty members. The club has successfully bred crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, axolotls, and hedgehogs on campus. They also currently house and keep a bearded dragon, blue tongue skink, leachianus gecko, ackie monitor, as well as maintain a 300 gallon fish tank. Members meet every Friday for a general meeting, and ten to twelve students assist with creature care both before and after school every day.
If you are interested in having the club present at your school or are interested in joining the Aquaculture and Herpetology club, please email Mr. Barbara at firstname.lastname@example.org.
