Hi my name is Patrick. I made this website to spread the message about Palm Oil. Remember to keep coming back as I continue to add pages and improve my site. If you like this website I am sure you will also like my other website www.patsendangeredanimals.com. Hope you enjoy.
why is palm oil bad?
20 square miles of pristine rainforest is chopped and burned every day! WWF says, an area the equivalent size of 300 football fields of rainforest is cleared each hour!
animals affected by it
There are over 300,000 different species of animals that are effected by palm oil! These animals include monkeys, tigers, frogs, apes just to name a few.
Every one can make a difference. Steve Irwin was one person. You are one person you can make a difference!
I hope I can inspire you!
Ever since I was three I was interested in science. I am passionate about wildlife and saving endangered species. Mum says I have always had a special connection and vibe with animals. I loved watching Paleo World. My dad once said "What three year old watches Paleo World"!
how i am making a DIFFERENCE
I Was the first ever Environmental Officer at my school. That means I pick up rubbish, water, weed and care for the gardens. I also educate other students how to be more environmentally friendly. Every day I collect the classes fruit scraps and recycling.
I even got the school to recycle paper and have a compost bin!
I have joined the AYCC (Austrailan Youth Climate Coalition). As a member of this group I have signed a petition to help save the Great Barrier Reef! If you want to sign this petition click on the link, www.riskingthereef.org.au.
I am educating people through my websites, youtube and social media. At the moment I have only got three websites published but I am making many more.
I have also spread the message by appearing on Totally Wild with Ranger Stacey and Planet Ark. It is about getting outside more. To see the episode I am in click on the link, tenplay.com.au/channel-eleven/totally-wild/season-22/episode-57.
