Level Two. Not Ambitious Aims.

Level Two. Animal Aims.

By Michelle Lloyd.

Little Herbert found all animals interesting and this had been the case for quite some time. It took his breath away to contemplate how strangely beautiful differing animals were and how the lifestyles of the different species varied.

Thinking about animals made Little Herbert question how the experiences of habitat and home truly were. It was true that the climate was changing and it was because of this that Little Herbert’s dad arranged for him and his friends to go on a fact finding mission.

The friends and Little Herbert’s dad were no strangers to going on wilderness walks. Making the most of their own natural habitat, the group liked to go and take careful guided tours of the woods near to where they lived.

On this occasion, they were in for a walk on the wild side experience. Out in the wilds, Little Herbert found himself carefully picking his way through the overgrown leaves and branches. Even though the four had only just joined the guided walk, already they had noticed that the flowers lining their way from the path into the woods, were unseasonably early. It was a small observation but it mattered.

As expected, it was while the group assimilated with the wider tour that many more slight but significant changes became noticeably apparent.

Plants that usually gave additional cover to certain smaller animals in the woodland was less and less visible to the tour group, many trees looked to be in decline and those that stood were not as vivid as any of them remembered.

Little Herbert and his two friends, New One and RV all looked to each other. They had all seen more evidence of a woods unlike the one they had visited before. Backing up what they believed, as they gently made their way in to listen, the tour leader advised them all on the changes that had been noted by many experts.

In helping to protect the environment, each and every attempt was preserving an animal aim. In looking after the areas like our woodland, it was providing and maintaining as natural a habitat as possible, for the wild animals and the eco system.

The guide informed them about ways that they could assist in keeping the environment healthy. Tips like helping out reputable organisations, or even doing one or more of the proffered suggestions.

  1. Reduce, reuse and recycle. You could cut down on what you throw away.
  2. Volunteer for clean ups in your community.
  3. Conserve energy and water.
  4. Positively educate others.
  5. Choose sustainable.
  6. Shop wisely.
  7. Use long lasting products around your own natural habitat, like energy saving light bulbs.
  8. Help to maintain the green environment or maybe join in an official, collective effort to plant a tree.

Even the idea of losing any species of animals made Little Herbert’s heart beat that little bit faster. He listened, learned and promised that in his own way he would make those little differences, that all added up to making the wild side of life a viable potential for those who truly were wild at heart.
