Water are very important because people need it to drink. If you not drink water just one hour you be able a one sickness, which the Dehidration. Dehidration is dangerous for all the people.
Soil is a one material which a many materials. In the world, the soil habe a many problem for example soil pollution. Soil pollution are very dangerous for the plant because plant can die if the soil pollution can happen because the dangerous the waste of the fabric. If the soil in the world can able the pollution the plants, or the specialy is the forest can destroy because it.
Plants is a one organism in the world, in the forest the materials important is the plants. If in the world the plants is destroyed the forest too can deytroyed. The plants have important actor for the people, because the plants can produce the oxygen to breath. So, the plant is very important.

A new way to help to help from home!

Following the visit to Paignton Zoo last month, we came together and worked on a first for the conservation team of WWCT – the establishment of a system that allows people to support the programme in a way that directly supports our conservation activities. We have now created a donation page which channels contributions directly into the SY account, boosting our budget and subsequently the scope of our work. By providing a monetary contribution, however big or small, we can enable some extra funds for our activities which aim to tackle the broader conservation issues.

Thinking you would like to help? Even a small donation goes a long way!

We hope that you can be reassured that your hard-earned cash, in this tight economic climate, is going towards helping protect these majestic and beautiful animals and their forest-dwelling neighbours.
