About Belize, Featured, Headline »
Belize’s reputation as an eco-paradise has as much to do with people as with the stunning natural environment. We’re always hearing about individuals who show a deep commitment to the environment and take it upon themselves to protect our endangered animals and ensure their survival. Jamal Galves is one of those people.
I want to be an Eco-Kid because I love nature. My mom have taught me since I can remember not to throw away garbage through the car window and one time I did and she saw me and we had to go all the way back for me to pick it up. I cried and asked her why did she do that and she said to me that it can harm animals. From then I have never done that ever again. When I was 6 my mom also took me canoeing and we saw garbage on the river and a bird picking at it that is when I saw for myself how it can hurt animals. I try to teach my friends at school and most of them listen to me to throw away their garbage in the trash bin.
