I want to spread the news about going green and keeping the environment clean. When I see people wasting water I think about the people who don’t have water. I want to try to conserve water.

The global warming implications are not only affecting the plants and animals but also us, human beings. The last five years in Belize has been very hot and this is not good. I have notice that deforestation is increasing, pollution is increasing as well as our country’s population and if we continue in this unsustainable path, we will head to ecological disaster.

Being an Eco-kid would be an absolute honor. Being an Eco-kid would make a part of something big and great, something that could help. So what I am saying is I am a responsible ten year old who wants to help. I would do anything to be an Eco-kid. To be a part of something that would make me feel better if I knew I had done something to help.

I really don’t have any real camping experience but I will learn. I heard that Chaa Creek is the best resort in Belize and the world. I always wanted to visit Chaa Creek and be a part of its prestigious history. I hope I get a chance to ride a horse, it is one of my favorite fantasies. I’ve never been on a camp trip before and being an Eco-kid will be one of the greatest experiences in my life that I will cherish forever.

This year is the “New Beginning” for the Maya. I love to climb Maya temples and see the jungle from a new dimension. Imagine if I found an Ancient Maya spear head, clay pot or jade artifact? There is so little that is known about the Ancient Maya it would be amazing to find cool stuff to show the world and tell their story.

I want to be an Eco Kid because I want to make a positive difference in my beautiful country Belize. I strongly believe that it is young people like myself that will play an instrumental role in the future of Belize and the lessons that will be taught in this camp will lay down the foundation to equip me with the proper knowledge to make the changes.

We are stewards of our home, Earth. Planet Earth is the greatest treasure God created and we need to appreciate it as our own kingdom of happiness. As guardians of our planet, everyone of us needs to make it our goal to protect and preserve all that our Earth encompasses. The forest, it’s flora and fauna, our rivers and seas, our atmosphere all depend on us, it’s inhabitant, to let it remain for our future generations. Becoming an Eco kid will give more reasons to want to care for our environment.

I would like to be an Eco kid and be able to go to the Eco Kids Camp because this camp looks as much fun as when I went to Cub Scout Camp at Camp Oakley. Being a cub scout I get to do a lot of activities outside at our meetings. As cubs scouts we look after nature and learn to take care of it by doing garbage cleanup and planting trees around our community. We also have fun with other scouts by playing games and learning to share with them.

This summer camp will help me because the flora and fauna of Belize live in our environment and I want to immerse myself in it. Recently in Houston, Texas I was part of an eco team that built a green house and we went around picking garbage and when we would find a plastic bottle we would put it in the recycle bin.

I want to be an eco-kid because I like this planet, but lately I have started to not like if so much. The earth is supposed to be beautiful, but with all the garbage on our streets, in the drains, and on the sidewalks, it is a little – no, not a little, a lot less beautiful. When we leave garbage everywhere, people will not want to visit our city. That will bring down our tourism and hurt our economy.

I am Hazel; I would very much like to be an “Eco-Kid” because of my love for all animals, plants and things of nature. The responsibilities of an Eco-Kid involve the study of the habitats of animals and to help in the protection of homes of wild animals. As an Eco-Kid I will have the opportunity of working closely with private and public agencies such as The Lodge at Chaa Creek in the application of the principles and rules which guide us in living in peace and harmony with the earth and all its inhabitants.

Everyday you go outside and when you look around your community you see many more things that you can do to help your environment look as clean as you. I look around my environment and say to myself ‘Had I’ve always been living in this area and not been paying much attention to it’.

I want to be an Eco Kid because I like being outdoors and this camp sounds interesting and I know it will help me learn more ways to help the environment. I don’t know what I would do without a healthy environment. Without the green grass, colorful flowers, blue sky and animals, I would totally freak out. I imagine the world being so developed in a few years but then I also think about the world with deforestation, global warming, wars and no water because of what is happening now.

I want to be an Eco Kid so I can help preserve nature and work with others to heal back its injuries. As a small boy, I did not understand nature. Now that I have grown older, I understand that it is a life. It grows, lives and can die. It has feelings also.

I want to be an Eco Kid because it will give me the opportunity to appreciate all that nature in Belize has to offer. I could learn to care for it better and apply the gained knowledge to the three R’s (reduce, reuse, recycle). I will also be able to share with my friends, family and classmates my experience at camp.

My name is Adreano Finnetty. I am currently a Standard 6 student attending Holy Redeemer Primary School in Belize City. Since I was born, I realized how fascinated I am with nature and the Earth itself. I have taken time and effort to learn as much as possible about nature: from the simplest of organisms, like flowers with the power of pollination; and, bugs which lay millions of eggs every single day; to animals of brute strength like lions and sharks.

Every day we begin our daily routines in which we unknowingly are in touch with the ecology that surrounds us. Being an Ecokid means doing things to help our environment sustain itself like: turning off the water while we brush our teeth, volunteering to walk to school some days rather than riding in a car, disposing of our trash in the proper containers, recycling bottles and using plastic instead of Styrofoam containers for our lunch.

Over recent years, Planet Earth has had serious changes in the Eco system. I have the power to stop these changes. My priority is to save our environment. Our environment is everything around us, from clean, fresh- flowing rivers with colorful fishes breeding and living in it to tall green trees waving their branches at the tapir, jaguar, toucan and many other species that call the rainforest home.
