A few Year 5 children have been raising funds for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and Rare and Endangered Species Trust (REST) outside school. They want to raise awareness of the destruction of habitats as well as the effects of hunting and pollution on certain species. They spoke to their class today about trees being cut down for a variety of everyday products that we take for granted, including shampoos and for packaging. The pupils have also urged us to be aware of the effects of climate change and the melting of our ice caps on the habitats of polar bears and other species.
Their efforts, which have involved a range of sponsored activities, are hugely commendable. Good organisation and careful planning has been crucial in raising funds and in deepening awareness.
