“I realized there is a need to have urban children understand and appreciate nature they see in their own environs. If they do not understand nature in their community, I thought, how can they appreciate nature and conservation beyond?
By raising urban youth awareness about nature and conservation, I hope to spur their interest in conservation long term. As these students get older, they will have an understanding of conservation transferable to a bigger world. I am hoping, through these efforts, I can help in some way to create youth advocates of tomorrow.”
