The article focuses on the interest and vocation of Jenn Logan to protect native aquatic species in Denver, Colorado such as boreal toads. Her venture into wildlife conservation began after a high school summer trip, in which she banned tuna, together with her classmates, from their school district menu. During her school years, she volunteered as a worker in the Division of Wildlife, working in different wildlife-related projects. She was awarded as "Miss Fish Hatchery" by her student volunteer due to her wildlife interest. As an assistant manager at Native Aquatic Species Restoration Facility, Logan and her colleagues are obliged to wrote a manual on endangered species.
