About a month a go I was contacted by "Dr.Ken Jones" the founder of the A-team and asked to be a member of an elite International A-team.
I was astonished, when I went on their website and I saw what they were doing. I felt that I was not alone in my efforts to help protect animals.
I knew the that I was not fighting a battle that could not be won.
Dr. Jones pulled an amazing team of conservationists together. For me it was kind of like the X-men. Dr. Jones is an wildlife advocate, environmental educator, founder of the tropical Rainforest museum and of course the A-team for wildlife founder. He is an awesome person! He is helping kids around the world who are making a difference understand that what they are doing is important and deserves support.
So for my birthday this year, I asked all my guests to join my A-team for Wildlife club. This fall, I'm planning for it to be up and ready.
I encourage you to check out how to start an A-Team for wildlife club. There is so much helpful information on the website!
For our oceans,sharks and all the A-teams for wildlife, please keep trying and doing little things to help save our planet and the animals that live in it.
In a few days I will be traveling to Carlsbad, California. It is such a beautiful place. When I'm there, I'm really looking forward to visiting the San Diego Zoo, which is not too far from Carlsbad. In preparation for my trip, I have done a lot research about this zoo. One of my favourite ' land animals ' is the Koala. There are some Koala in the San Diego Zoo. I've never seen one up close before and I'm super excited to have this opportunity.
As I'm working on building my Activism in a Box Toolkit, I know that people have different interests. My focus is mostly on the oceans and endangered marine life, but it is important to highlight other animals as well.
Koalas are such amazing creatures and they are on the endangered list. They have very sharp claws and should be treated with respect. They will not hurt anyone unless seriously provoked.
Here are some tips to save these fluffy creatures:
Tip 1: Avoid buying eucalyptus products.
The koala spends most of time eating eucalyptus. They also depend on these trees to give them shelter and hide themselves from dingos. Without the eucalyptus tree, the koalas will cease to exist. Please don't buy these products in order to help keep koalas alive.
Tip 2: Donate to a koala foundation.
This may seem like a small thing to do, but it will make such a huge difference. If you donate a dollar or 50 dollars, your contribution will still make an important difference.
Tip 3 : Support the building of koala bridges in Australia.
So many koalas die each year from being hit by cars. If we support the people who build bridges for koalas, we increase the survival rate of this little grumpy fluff balls.
For our Oceans, sharks and koalas. Thank you for reading today's blog.
