Kids in Southern California are spreading the message – “We Can Save Our Wildlife!”
These young environmentalists are going to their nearby stores that sell rat poison, like D-con, and explaining how it is dramatically affecting the food chain of nearby wildlife. With Wildlife Petitions in hand, they are bringing awareness to their communities and preventing more poisons from getting out there.
Animals that eat mice and other rodents are dying as a result of eating a lunch that is full of poison. This means no more baby owlets, or baby bobcats, or mountain lion cubs if the mother dies bringing them breakfast. No more familiar sightings of red-tailed hawks circling overhead. Animals living freely is a legacy we should protect for our children. However, these kids are not waiting for others to make a difference; they are taking action now! Will you join us?
Information to better understand the situation is posted on this website. In addition, you will find HOW you and your family can make the biggest impact in SAVING WILDLIFE NOW! And there are events that you can attend or volunteer in order to bring greater awareness to YOUR community.
We also have a list of stores we endorse because they are selling alternative products that DO NOT poison the precious wildlife and ecosystem. Some of them signed on after listening to our kids! Proving to our most precious generation that YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Join our Facebook page to find updates on events in the SoCal area where you can support our kids supporting WILDLIFE.
About Topanga Wildlife Awareness Youth Project:
We are a local, youth-‐driven, parent organized group who are working to raise awareness on rodent poisons affecting our local wildlife food chain. The children have been working really hard to raise awareness for our local residents on the dangers of rodent poison and the safe alternatives. We sponsored an essay/drawing contest in Topanga, CA that will be displayed by our Topanga Library. We will have a passionate presence at the 2013 Topanga Earthday festival and stage time. We have built owl nesting boxes to sell to raise funds for California Wildlife Center (CWC), who cares and rehabilitates sick wildlife locally. The CWC took in over 4,000 sick and injured animals last year and they specialize in helping wildlife be rehabilitated to get back to the wild. They also have given our group tours and planted the seeds that got these kids activated to Help Our Wildlife Thrive.
