Pet owners buy so much pet food and it comes in big plastic bags. Often, these bags are bound for the landfill. "Fido Recycles Too" reuses these bags to create durable, reusable grocery bags simultaneously reducing the single use bags and reusing potential waste. In order for "Fido Recycles Too" to really make a difference, people need to know why single use bags are so detrimental to the environment. Therefore, this project will include an interactive educational display to be used in conjunction with the distribution of "Fido Recycles Too" bags. Local farmers markets, environmentally focused grocery stores, and the county fair will be the first venues for "Fido Recycles Too." Pet owners and non pet owners alike can help this project succeed, by reusing pet food bags and helping to educate the public.

The program is called "The Stray" (Adespotos in Greek) and the protagonist is a stray dog. The dog is a fingerpuppet that we use in the kindergarten and it symbolizes every stray animal on the streets of the city.The cartoonist Vaggelis Papavasiliou has also helped us with the program and he designed the picture of “The Stray”. The children in my kindergarten classroom have named themselves “the buddies of The Stray”. The program lasts throughout the year, and the Stray is involved in children's daily lives. Through the children the parents are involved too, which I consider as the best way for spreading the program’s goals.It is a cross-curricular program that is implemented through literary activities, visits to vets, contact with people active in the field of animal welfare (clubs), videos with animal content, as well as creating videos which raise awareness over the responsibilities of adopting of an animal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwFRPN2Bh44&t=92s One of the program actions is "The Bucket of the Stray" This is the reuse of the popular package of one kilo of yoghurt as a collection of family food leftovers and their promotion to stray animals.

My wish is for rescued raptors of Phoenix , Arizona to have a safe and clean, nurturing, safe nesting aviary so they can heal and return to their habitats upon recovery. Several family and friends have wanted to join me in helping the maintenance of the habitat, so I have planned for another project on 11/23/2018. I will reach out to the manager of the Wild At Heart (Cave Creek) habitat to find out about specific cleaning or maintenance projects they have in mind for volunteers. Then I will co-ordinate a date and time that works for everyone and plan a trip to the facility for everyone.

I will research books, fact based websites, biological facts and news articles about the Vaquita Porpoise. I will write an article, cite resources and submit it for review by the senior editor guides at Bear Essential news. I will also draw and illustrate my own picture of the Vaquita to accompany the article in the newspaper. I will work to ensure any edits and suggestions from the editor reviews are included into the article and then will submit final draft for publication.

I decided to take on this project because after my previous work at the facility others reached out to me and expressed an interest in helping out at the rescue habitat.

We will use the paper beads to made bracelets, necklaces, and key chains to sell to our friends, neighbors, family members, etc. Them money we raise from our jewelry sales is donated to the CSWCT to help support the Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Uganda. Through this project we are able to help make a difference for the people in Uganda and for the plight of the chimpanzees.
