Saving Wildlife – Coffee, Cake and Cards in Settle
Statements such as “The Earth has lost half its wildlife in the past 40 years” are staggering –
More specifically: ‘in less than two human generations, population sizes of (wild) vertebrate species have dropped by half’ The Living Planet Report 2014-WWF.
Yet we must not give up hope. We need to do things to save what is left for future generations.
Judith Allinson of Settle writes:
“At Settle Methodist Church on 1st November we will be holding our annual coffee morning to raise money to help protect what is left.
If we raise £100, that is enough to protect an acre of rainforest according to Cool Earth and World Land Trust. And if we raise more we will give money to A Rocha Ghana who are fighting to save The Atewa Forest in Ghana that is under threat.
It is only a tiny thing to do. But better to do this than nothing.
What more can we do?? (Comments welcome)
