CIV: des actions en faveur de l’environnement

CIV: des actions en faveur de l’environnement

Dans le cadre de son programme d’éducation à la protection de la biodiversité, Calao a initié deux actions dans le Nord Ouest de la Cote d’Ivoire.

  • Le lundi 20 Novembre 2017, à l’occasion du lancement des activités du Club Environnement du Collège Municipal de Tieme (Direction régionale d’Odienné au nord ouest de la Côte d’Ivoire), Oumar Kanté, notre coordinateur pour l’éducation, a partagé sa passion pour la biodiversité en entretenant les élèves et leurs encadreurs sur la nécessité de préserver leur environnement.
    Il a ensuite fait un don de poubelles pour faciliter la gestion des déchets, des sacs composts dont des sacs pour les pépinières afin de permettre de replanter des arbres au sein dudit établissement. Il a aussi offert des bandes dessinées au club. Ces bandes dessinées dont la lecture permettra aux enfants de s’engager dans la protection des chimpanzés ont été offertes par  Alexandra Gazel, des Editions Bayard et de SOS Ponso, une amie de Calao.
  • Invité par la direction de la Maternelle René Caillié de la direction régionale de l’éducation nationale d’Odienné, Oumar a expliqué aux enfants et à leurs enseignants l’impact de la mauvaise gestion des ordures sur la biodiversité, et indirectement sur notre alimentation.
    Il a ensuite offert des poubelles personnalisées par Calao tout en prenant le soin d’expliquer aux enfants leur mode d’utilisation.

Newsletter Matapes Community School May 2017

The drought, which lasts already for seven months in the North of Kenya, did not spare our Community School in Matapes (Latakwen region). From the 117 children registered in 2016/2017 at school only 32 are present, the others had to flee their homes with their parents to better place for their cattle.
Unfortunately, no food has been delivered from the Government yet, an usual process that motivates Samburus to stay at school.
Most of families had to move far from the school to be able to access water and food.  Most of their cattle died during the drought and the situation is worsening.

Please keep on supporting our actions in the region …..

The school and above all CHILDREN needs your support to get food  

You can always foster one child with 15 EUR per month – please use our crowdfunding button

On 29th April 2017, thanks to a great team of volunteers, a new beach cleaning was made in Parda Beach, nearby Shark point.

300 Kgs were picked up! but there is still a lot to do on that beach.
Another beach cleaning is planned later in the month.
Thanks to Gato Brabo, we got all these pictures.

Thanks to you all for your great job!

“I have a week to make a change” by Hilda Tresz

Not all zoos reach the international standards to keep animals “between bars”.
So many zoos do not know how to handle animals. The lack of experience and the fear of their management and staff are the main reasons why some animals suffer from solitary confinement.

Hilda has been working for years to help animals in solitary confinement in zoos around the World.  She reminds all zoos their responsability in helping animals in enclosures.  As she said “These animals did not ask to be there; you are their eyes! you have to understand them and help them.  you are responsible for them“.
She creates new environments out of nothing and educates caregivers and zoo keepers how to make a better life to these animals.  She has no fear to express her disapproval to management and governments on zoo animal caring issues.

She has been working with Calao since 2012 when she came to Abidjan Zoo to help out with the chimps.  She has a fabulous experience on doing enrichment with no means.  She is a great support and Calao could not do without her advices at Abidjan Zoo.

THANKS HILDA!  Keep the good job!
