Kids For A Clean Environment's newest service learning project
is, "2001: Earth Odyssey". The Earth Odyssey is a very special program
because it addresses three important issues:
Habitats, Air quality and Land management.
The program's focus is on the survival of animals, the health
of children, and the loss of land and natural resources.
Is it important for us to provide habitats for wildlife, improve
the quality of the air, and manage land wisely?
Well, for one thing, did you know that the destruction of the
rain forest and urban development has destroyed natural wildlife
habitats leaving many species on the threatened or endangered list?
Did you also realize that active children are the highest risk
group from ozone exposure?
Did you ever stop to think that recycling prevents almost 61 million
tons of waste material from ending up in landfills and incinerators
each year? These are just some of the reasons that lead us to create
the 2001: Earth Odyssey project where we could not only learn more
about these issues but we could also start doing things to help
protect our Habitats, Air, and Land.
