The Junior Forum priority for 2015-2016 was ‘People need to respect the natural habitat of wildlife’. The Junior Forum Cabinet decided to write a petition to the Welsh Assembly which will be open for signatures until 30th September 2016.
The Petition is called ‘Wildlife Warriors’
Junior Forum members believe that every primary school in Wales should have an environment club called the "Wildlife Warriors" to help to protect the natural environment of local wildlife.
This club would:
- be different from schools eco committees as it would allow anyone to join at any age. Children would not need to be elected to the club.
- be active all year to help protect wildlife.
- be hands on in their community and do practical activities to help protect wildlife. These activities could include, cleaning rivers, building wildlife homes, planting flowers and trees.
- be flexible so different people can join at different times.
Junior Forum reps participated in a workshop on this at last week’s meeting, and produced posters to raise awareness in their schools. We would appreciate your support in raising awareness of this petition and enable children to sign if they wish to do so via the online link.
