My project is taking the form of an independent study at school and has the following components: research, a paper, a film showing, and several final presentations. The film will be one that I feel is informative and accurate about palm oil production, and my plan is to set up a time after school where peers from my high school can come and watch. The final presentation will be a culmination of the research I do over the course of the semester and I'll be presenting it to the school I currently attend, the school I attended for lower and middle school, and a few others if I can get permission. The overall goal is to make this issue known to my local community and let them know how they can take action!

We organized an awareness campaign in a hypermarket located in Al Barsha, Dubai, to tell people about the ill effects of plastic on the environment. This marked the beginning of a new year for us. With a group of 12 students from different Dubai-based schools, we spoke to customers and requested them to take a pledge to reduce the usage of plastic and consider alternative options, because of the harm it causes to our planet. View the article on Gulf News http://gulfnews.com/your-say/your-reports/raising-awareness-on-the-effects-of-plastic-1.1962054 The campaign called for an eye-opening conversation amongst my group of friends and we decided to take on a challenge of actively encourage people to build a safe and sustainable environment for our future generations.

I have included photos that I find from other sources like PETA and Vegan Alliance. I believe if people know this information they will make more informed decisions and not purchase foods with these products. Who knew that while eating Parmesan Cheese, one was actually eating a baby cow's stomach? And if we saw how badly some of our animals were being treated, it would move others to not eat them at all or at the very least fight for better care.

Vegetarianism is a domino affect. Shortly after I became vegetarian, my mom, followed. I've learned that by example alone can be an inspiration. People see that it can be done and I believe it jars their conscience. So I plan to continue to politely (and sometimes not so much) defend why one should not eat animals and affect more people by eating healthy without meat and showing that we do not need to eat animals. Even one animal saved is worth it!

Like most animals, bats are losing their environment. When I was younger, we would watch the bats fly around at night. One lived under the covering on our porch. But I noticed less and less bats flying around. I asked our local nature center and they said we are losing bats because they do not have suitable homes. Up to 20 bats can sleep in one small wooden shelter. So I asked my friends to help me build bat houses and we will get our local volunteers to install them both in our backyards and hopefully at the Nature Center as well! Again, bats usually only have one pup a year so we need to protect them now before we lose them forever!

We will have lessons about native species and try to locate any native plants that might already be found in the garden. We will investigate which native plants might grow best in our garden and why. We will purchase native plant seedlings and care for them in the garden until they grow and mature. We will study the role each native plant plays in the garden ecosystem and then make comparisons with the role of a native plant found in another natural environment (like a forest). Finally, we will see how our native plants contribute to the success of edible crops.

The students are going to research ingredients needed to make the eco-friendly (Homemade Sprays) instead of harmful chemicals such as neonics that have been destroying the pollinator populations. Another project is to create the pollinator friendly nutritious gardens around our local city.

Most every gardener, dare I say most every human appreciates bees and pollinators. We need them to sustain our very lives. Most of us also aware of the problems of colony collapse and would like to do something even if we don’t have the inclination or location to put up a bee hive. Thankfully there is something we can all do even if we don’t want to become beekeepers and that is create native bee habitat. Planting gardens so that a variety of native bees can not only find a home but find food in a way that is more natural to them, i.e. plant in groupings. There’s so much more to it than just planting a few flowers. Children are our future. The goal is for every school to have an area to plant native flowers. Native flowers help feed bees and are uniquely adapted to their region. Children will learn about the native bees and flowers at school and hopefully will have their own bee habitat at home.
