Our project will create monofilament recycling containers, place them at frequented areas in our town where we have identified an increase in monofilament trash. We will then monitor and empty these containers on a regular basis and send the monofilament to the Berkley Institute of Conservation for recycling.

Our project will be to create different types of activities for children (ages 3-10) that get them moving and get them interested in learning more about wildlife. We put together different stations: one was a venomous vs. nonvenomous snake identification talk with an albino corn snake. We used the snake so kids can touch her and learn that snakes aren't actually so scary! We had a couple crafts: bird feeders with sun butter and bird feed and an elephant craft. Since it was the day before Easter, we made an Easter egg hunt! We filled eggs with different kinds of candy and different pictures of local wildlife with little facts underneath. Then after they had collected them all, they could come talk to the volunteers about the local wildlife! There was also an oil spill station, where kids were able to see the impacts of oil on feathers and get to feel how different water is with oil in it.

We are forming an after school club of second to fifth graders in which we will create artworks about swifts to display in public and create and perform a puppet show for elementary students about swifts. We will research how swifts are faring in our town, and may propose to build a swift tower if we find a suitable site.

Our project will drastically impact the space allotted to us by engaging aspects of ecosystem restoration to make it livable for various species. We will document our work and share it with the public to encourage others around us to support native wildlife and hopefully make changes in their own lives and backyards.

The children already meet on Saturdays and Sundays at my home on the edge of the jungle. We meet in the two dance pavilions I have built over the years. There are two men, Wayan Damai, Wayan Sutika who are very knowledgeable and there are others too, to help us make a book, bit by bit of our local medicinal plants and wild food plants. The more the children know about these plants the more they are likely to protect the forest which we still have in Puakan. Naturally these people should be paid. It is possible to have this part of the program on Saturdays as Sundays are devoted to traditional dance, play, reading and drawing. The cost of the medicinal plant program is, Drawing teacher, and/or Plant teacher for 3 hours, $15, 3 staff helpers, $12, lunch for all, $25. Art supplies are always my personal contribution

the Classroom will offer the learners an opportunity to learn more about conservation of animals, trees and biodiversity as a whole. Firstly an existing classroom in the school will be renovated and repainted with tree paintings, flowers, insects and animal tracks will be painted on the classroom walls. Then we will try our level best to make the classroom look as an outdoor classroom as possible full of colour and drawings.
