I am a young reporter for Bear essentials News. My goal for this project was for my team and I to meet and be inspired by Dr. Goodall. The lecture was interesting, inspiring and motivational. I learned about her grit as a young lady and determination and dedication to conversation of wildlife. Her mission to advocate and educate the world about the importance of taking care of our planet,ourselves and the wildlife that share it. I hope that my readers and subscribers will be inspired by Dr. Goodall the way I was.

A group of students researched potential causes of red tide and were shocked to discover that runoff from fertilizers might contribute to increased and more severe red tides, a naturally occurring phenomena. They decided to create a YouTube video to educate other students as well as present to our second graders.

We will have our students look for evidence of the wildlife already in the area. We will also try to do a numbers research on what and how many animals we see. Then we will set up the area to increase the number of animals. Such as bat and bluebird houses. Our story trail will be used to make citizens more aware of the environment around them. It would be to used to acquire the necessary goods/services to set up the area at our school. We will need lumber etc. to build the houses. We will use our HS departments to help build the houses. We will also need supplies for the story trail including permanent posts with weather safe book slots and books.

Our project will inform and influence our community on the work of Jane Goodall and what we can do to have a positive impact on the environment. We will present our learning during a school-wide presentation available to the students and staff, family, and community members.

My idea is to take a look at the negative things happening in the news once a week, and then decide to take specific action to counteract the negativity and help those affected. Examples: >If the main headlines revolved around hate crimes, we could all post messages on social media to spread love instead of hate, as well as donating to any relevant human rights charities. >If it was bullying, we could all do a Random Act of Kindness for a stranger, and pledge to be kind and stand up against harassment whenever we see it. >If it was cruelty against domestic animals, we could all volunteer at, donate to, and/or publicly promote local animal rescues. >If it was wild animal endangerment or other forms of environmental destruction, we could do an activity such as picking up litter, as well as donating to environmental charities and taking pledges to reduce our carbon footprint as much as practical and possible. (Even though the latter would be a more long-term thing, we could still check up on progress weekly.) >And finally, if it was something to do with negative or harmful laws, we could call or email our state representative. This is not a complete list, of course, because we never know what will happen, but I hope it is enough to get the idea across. If all goes well, it would be a group or club at my high school. Anyone involved with the school would be welcomed, whether students, teachers, administrators, or even parents, as long as the admins would allow that. My school is very small due to being a private school, but I think we could still make a difference, no matter how small we start out. It has been said that the best way to counteract all the depressing events is to do *something*. Even it just helps one person, or one animal, or one patch of wilderness, it's still better than nothing, and even if it's not the entire planet, it can be a world of meaning to that one individual. Be kind! Sincerely, Elizabeth.

I want to make people more aware of the cruelty of the still-growing wildlife trade, especially the bird trade in Indonesia. The bird trade along with the destruction of natural habitats have brought many birds in Indonesia to the brink of extinction.  Java is currently the center of Indonesia's illegal bird trade. From all parts of Indonesia and other Southeast Asian countries bird species are smuggled in order to satisfy the desire for exoticism, entertainment, representation and status. Birds are not treated as living sentient beings, but as consumer products and property.

We want to create awareness for birds as living beings and important part of our ecosystems. We want to make graffitis, paintings, comics and performances with the message of saving these unique creatures from extinction and bring their voices back to nature. We would like to offer educational programs and bird watching trips for students and adults. We want to make bird watching public as a different way to deal with birds. We want to do research on real and online markets for illegal bird trade as there are many birds are illgally traded openly. And we want to connect with organisations that protect birds and animals like AnimalFriendsJogja, FLIGHT, BKSDA and BURUNG NUSANTARA.

This project aims to raise awareness about the effects of illegal use of poisoned baits in the natural environment, biodiversity and society. More specifically, we will educate students of semi-urban environments on the effects of pesticides against rodents on the trophic webs, using Tyto alba (Barn-owls) as a case study. Moreover, we will build and place nest-boxes around schools and provide students with instructions on how to build their own. In this way, we are setting an example on how rodent populations can be locally controlled by barn-owls rather than pesticides.
