The goal is to create fundraising events for the Jane Goodall Institute, power-points for teachers to use to educate their students, and to tell at least 100 people about my project so more people can be aware of its goal! I will mostly spread the word through family, friends, and the local schools in my area. Though, if my project starts to take off, I will probably go online in order to reach a larger group of people. To make an even greater impact, in order to save everything I, and all nature lovers, care about.

My wish for this project is to teach others to reuse their plastic store bought gallons and fill them with drinking water. Also these gallons can be used to make bird feeders.

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.

The Oakley Park Roots & Shoots leaders will research what plants are good for our zone, research a healthy habitat for our animal visitors and research the benefits of learning outdoors. We will then implement our findings by planting new plants, building a heathy habitat for our mother duck and other animals and last we will educate our school on the importance of outdoor class time.

The grandchildren (now ages 4 and 6) help to choose plants, and they help to plant and care for them. They have selected fruit trees to grow and have specified which butterflies to try to attract to the garden. They help to water and to weed and to fill the bird-feeder.

We will plant California milkweed (Asclepias fascicularis) in the hopes that we can be part of a larger effort to provide habitat for Monarchs to reproduce, for the voracious larvae to feed, and to provide native habitat for other butterfly species, moths and the various insects and invertebrates that will take up residence in our “butterfly gardens.” The habitat created for Monarchs will also support the declining bee population.

The aim of the project is to raise public awareness of the relationship among man, environment and animals. We foster knowledge of the phenomenon of re-wilding and of the wild species that are repopulating our Apennines. The final aim is to raise appreciation of the sustainable lifestyles of rural populations and wildlife that share our same environment.
