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.
Me and Nayoun from S. Korea will be creating an international, online video database with videos from projects from all over the world, so anyone can have access and watch them. You can inspire and be inspired! Anyone can send their video as long as it shows a project done by them, regarding animals, people or the environment. In order for your video to be featured, you must plant a tree and record it at the end of the video! In that way, more trees will be planted and everyone will benefit from this action!

Our project will help animals, people, and the environment. It helps us learn about the environment because we will be in nature and appreciate it more. We will be adding to our outdoor classroom by adding a chalkboard and new and better benches. We will help the environment by planting wildflowers including milkweed for monarchs, we will minimize the impact on the ecosystem by limiting where we work, we will also be adding to animal habitats.

Create a certified standard for native made products all around the world. A website with the same name native-spirit will offer handicraft, artisan made, etnic made produce and products from all around the world. Be it is mask from Papua New Guinea, A knife from the Sami, or a belt from Guatemala. A wayuu bag from Guajira, a Lakota Drum. With the neccessary awarness and an auction type plattform, I have no doubt that single products can reach symbolical high prices if the message is that the true protectors on the foremost front are and always have been our indigenous brothers. By supporting this native made standard and these native groups, conservation and safeguarding their environment can become a reality. Lady Jane Goodalls roots and shots organisation would help coordinate this locally in each community and the plattform with its auctions and income....

Our project is to continue picking up litter and encourage others to do the same. While cleaning up the city we shall list and describe all the different wildlife and show how the animals make our neighborhood a better place to live. Some form of presentation about the animals who share our neighborhood may help others choose to help keep our city litter free and help people appreciate the animals who share our living places.

We are hosting a workshop at Barnes and Noble on June 30th from 12-4. At the workshop we will dissect mobile phones and identify the metals inside them, have a discussion about where these metals came from and why they are important to recycle, and introduce the idea of Fairphone Smartphones and Fair Trade Electronics. We are raising awareness of ape conservation and fundraising for Camp Friendship's annual summer retreat to Maine.

September-December We will learn about how we can safely coexist with coyotes in our community and on our school grounds. As an urban community, we come into contact with coyotes on our school grounds. We will make posters, signs, door hangers, and teach our community about what to do to be safe and to appreciate these beautiful animals. We will host a Town Hall meeting at our school and invite our community to learn from our student experts. We also hope to work with our preschool to help them know what to do in the event that they come in close proximity to coyotes.

The target demographic is women in their freshman and sophomore years of high school when they are starting to consider the possibility of college and potential career paths. Our program will give a group of 5-10 girls the opportunity to acquire hands on experience working in a wildlife rescue. They will come in once or twice a month to build skills in animal husbandry and enrichment, learn about the zoological field and be guided through the mentorship of female animal curators at the Rescue. The girls will also work on a scientific project in which they will be instructed to study a specific animal and devise a suitable enrichment activity. For example, a puzzle with food rewards for monkeys. They then can create a report or presentation for science classes, or science fairs, etc. In addition to career development, our program will provide a therapeutic outlet to girls who may have difficulties at home, or in their communities. Working with animals and spending time in nature has been proven to reduce stress, aid in depression, and boost mood. This experience will help these girls to develop team-working skills, encourage female empowerment, become environmentally conscious and moreover, get them focused and inspired for their future.
