I will reach out to the local animal shelter and organize a visit and tour to learn more about their mission as a nonprofit and about adoption centers in general and how to support them.

I will try creating awareness through social media. Engage myself in helping the strays and unowned animals on streets. Also make people of the beautiful Himalayan community of my state, their culture, their lives, their challenges.

Our group through "Operation Identification" will participate in a three-fold program that will involve: 1. Developing posters, flyers, etc. to make the community aware of the resources available to them in rescued animals, medical services (both emergency and continued care,) and wildlife game preserves. 2. Establishing a "Community Volunteer Day" at the local animal shelter to assist with a day of care for the animals and involving the community of the shelter's location, function, and services. 3. Press awareness involving the students participation at the shelter and mailing out 'thank-you' letters to those who assisted on the community involvement day. We will develop a follow-up system through students calling those services presented to discover if their services Increased/Decreased/ or Remained the Same after our initial start. Since the forming of our "Roots-and-Shoots" campaign, I rescued a baby squirrel that had its home destroyed through the falling of a tree after a storm. I raised the squirrel from a few days old throughout the year, and as we were wrapping up out school year, we returned "Oscar" the squirrel in the wild, as it should be. Our Roost-and-Shoots group kept up with Oscar's growth and progress, and celebrated as he was released into the wild. After a week, he seems to be thriving, yet does appreciate our little visits!

We will have a small entrance fee for the pet parade and will give the proceeds to the Chico Homeless Animal Outreach program to assist in offsetting some costs for professional help with their clients' animals.

We want to address the challenge of slowing down climate change as well as how to implement the prototype of a successful house made from recycled materials. We plan on finishing up our recycling campaign and then creating the recycled house prototype for the Indigenous Communities.

We plan to create an art recycling project and decrease our carbon footprint to help preserve the Marshall Islands by education students and the community about the importance of recycling and how it is directly effecting the indigenous communities of the Marshall Islands.
