Hi, my name is Shaneli Pop, I am 10 years old and I live in beautiful Cayo District. I really want to be an eco kid because I want to discover the life between the plants and animals. I want to help protect the endangered animals. I also want to help the plants grow big and beautiful. I have seen with my naked eyes how men cut down trees and I felt bad because I couldn’t do any thing. They should realize that trees give us oxygen to live. Also those trees are homes for many animals. I also heard when my dad’s friend talks about how they go hunting for deer and it is not even the season to do that.
I really want to spend the nine days at the Chaa Creek camp site. This would be the first time I would experience something like this. It would be an important moment in my life. I want to be a part of the excitement living in the wild with the animals and beautiful plants. Also I want to see and learn more about our beautiful Macal River. I heard my teacher talking about the different types of pollution in our environment. So he said that we should use the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle). Me and my friends always talk about how we can help save the trees and animals in our country because when the little children grow up they can all see the beautiful plants and animals, and they can do what we are doing. Me and my friends want to go green so we can save the environment. I hope when I get there we can plant different kinds of trees and flowers and we don’t have to plant it in new containers we can use old bins, milk carts, bottle bottoms, or even old cups or old containers.
Well that’s all I can write so see you later!!!
