To make a difference
It goes without saying that the more money an organisation has, the more they can do. Every little bit helps.
Set out in Organisations is a list of various not-for-profit groups that accept donations.
Did you know that one of the secrets to happiness is said to be volunteering in the community? There are plenty of ways to volunteer, whether its by doing a bird count in your own backyard, joining a local weeding group in the native reserve, helping conservation groups to monitor threatened species, a beach litter pick up to name a few.
In the words of Whitney Houston, 'The children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.'
There are lots of incredible resources available now to make educating children about conservation issues easy and fun. Set out in Organisations, I have flagged in red websites that offer great educational materials for children.
You don't need to spend money to make a difference. Speaking out sends an important message to your friends and community that you care about an issue. The more people speak out, the more likely things will change.
Silence changes nothing.
Planting native plants in your garden, or re-vegetating an area of cleared land, is one of the best and simplest ways of helping to provide food and habitat to native fauna.
Alternatively, you can donate to organisations like World Land Trust to plant a tree or buy an acre.
