If you ask the average Puerto Rican student the name of five wild animals, the answer will probably contain animals such as lion, elephant, giraffe, hippopotamus, or zebra. Rarely will they mention fauna from their own archipelago. The reason is probably that these native animals are seldom mentioned in textbooks or classrooms. Dr. Eddie Laboy Nieves has undertaken a project to change the Puerto Rican public's knowledge of their own fauna. The Puerto Rican Fauna Videoteque collects over 210 videos of animals endemic to our islands.
