Ever since I was three I was interested in animals. Mum says I have always had a special connection and vibe with animals.
How Am I Making a Difference
I was the first ever Environmental Officer at my primary school. That means I pick up rubbish and take care of the gardens. I even got the school to recycle, compost and to go nude food (lunches can not have plastic packaging)! Before this happened they filled by 30-40 bins a week now they only fill up around 6. I am now working with my high school to become more sustainable.
I have joined the AYCC (Austrailan Youth Climate Coalition). As a member of this group I have signed a petition and raised money to help save the Great Barrier Reef! I am also a member of the QLD Youth Environmental Council (QYEC)
I am educating people through my websites, youtube and social media. At the moment I have only got three websites published but I am making many more.
I have also spread the message by appearing on Totally Wild with Ranger Stacey and Planet Ark. It is about getting outside more. To see the episode I am in click on the link, tenplay.com.au/channel-eleven/totally-wild/season-22/episode-57.
I have done many public speeches on subjects like how kids can make a difference and environmental sustainability.
I am Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary's guest blogger. Once a month I will go into the sanctuary and do an interview with one of the keepers there about a conservation initiative they are doing. The interview will be on their website, my website and youtube. This program is aimed at kids and spreading the message to them about some of Australia's most endangered animals and what they can do to help save them.
