The Roots of Hope members decided to organize a beach clean up, a educational poster campaign, a #promiselessplastic social media campaign, and write letters to local grocery stores about their plastic use.
To make our wishes come true, we will contact the city of Boulder, create and post and educational sign, get rid of old tires, add fish, get more trash cans, add more water, make animal crossing signs, add sprinklers, clean dog poop, pick up trash on the playground, share our information with others, add a filtration system, and clean up trash in and around the pond
On September 24, at 10:00am we will meet at Plymouth Long Beach and sign people in for the cleanup.
We will grow and care for the fish and the plants it in the schools front garden area. We have no fresh vegetables at school lunch so by doing this project we will be bringing fresh vegetables to school lunch.
Our communities in the Highlands are coming together to raise awareness of an urgent issue, which not only threatens a specially protected habitat of an important bottlenose dolphin population, but is also threatening the endangered harbour porpoises and marine life as well as local bird colonies. In the area of highest density of our beloved dolphins (which attract thousands of tourists each year)- a proposal has been made to allow ship to ship oil transfers. Not only has this application been shown to lack any economic gain to our community, it has also been criticised by over a dozen experts and environmental bodies. In spite of heavy criticism from leading ecology experts and concerned bodies the application is still being pursued. Our community council held a meeting and the vote was unanimous against the proposals to allow this. We also instructed experts in the oil industry to review the reports and surveys and found the risk assessments to be flawed and grossly underestimating the impact on the dolphin families of the Cromarty and Moray Firths. Let alone the extensive impact on our local bird colonies and other wildlife, such as a humpback whale "Humpy"- spotted just yesterday at the very site of the suggested oil-transfers. With the UK government already under attack from EU courts over its failure to properly protect our marine mammals (especially harbour porpoise)- we as a community feel we must hold them accountable for the protection of these special creatures. We feel privileged to be able to walk just minutes from our homes at almost any day of the year and see the dolphins playing and interacting close to the shore. Everyone who has been here on holiday and witnessed it, feels how special that is. People come here on holiday, year after year to see them again. We really feel that the dolphins especially are our friends, and in fact their presence has brought an estimated £270million annually to our local economy through direct tourism and ecotourism. That's something we feel gives them a right to remain safe in their preferred habitat. The dolphins dont have a voice, so we want to give them one! We are fundraising and educating people locally about the plans so that we can rise together as a community to challenge this unnecessary threat to their environment. We hope to protect their home and ensure they are here for many generations to feel the special connection with them. We hope that we will win our plight to choose Nature over Profit.
Our project will help people that fish catch fish, this is a great bait to fish with. Also it will help people that don't have much money to spend on fishing baits, buy our baits because they are going to be cheaper than what they are usually.
Our goal for this project is to create a new system in our community that will allow humans and animals to share our environment, operate sustainably, and support any endangered species. By planting native and drought tolerant plant species, our group will help sustain the native habitat of the Santa Monica Mountains, combat invasive species, and restore food supply for animals, who are currently starving due to drought in California. Our group will meet bi-weekly to collaborate on ways to alleviate stress caused by the severe California drought. We will promote sustainabilty, create easy-ways for members of our school and community to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, reduce our carbon footprint, all to protect our fragile environment and preserve it for the future.
Through the use of a children's book we will illustrate how these plastics upset the oceans ecosystems and cause harm to all whom inhabit the ocean.
Action time is two years,but i will start by providing education to the people. Inorde to creat awereness about my project.
will work with the community hand to hand sharing information with the government and other members with in roots and shoots and Jane Goodall institute
