Hey everyone!! i hope you are all ok.
if you could just email me a photo of yourself and a small paragraph saying what you name is, how old you are and how you became interested in being a YC then that would be absolutely brilliant!!! at the moment it just looks like Laura and me are the only two youth councilers (see below!)

Leah they look like good discussion points - perhaps we could bring them up in next meeting if there is time - that way we could get other people's opinions and then relate them to what we would like to do in the youth council. It would be great if we could show people that we are taking issues in society and applying them to what we are carrying out or improving.

Anyway Happy Christmas to everyone. hope you get some lovely presents and have a happy new year :D (please don't forget about the pics :D)

Hey All :)
Wow... it really has been a while!..
Anyways, if anyone's up for a discussion, i think i've finally had some interesting ideas...

1. Discuss the pro's and con's of traditional, specific conservation and preservation.
  • Is it always a good idea to focus mainly on one or two species that are particularly rare or endangered, if their needs are in conflict with those of more common but still vital species?
  • Is the protection gained for wildlife from almost totally shutting out the public from a certain 'protected' area enough to balance the loss of public awareness of wildlife this generally causes?
2. If given the choice, would you choose to work out in the field or in an office based capacity?

3. Do you think the courses and lessons at your school or college directed wholly or partly towards raising wildlife awareness and understanding are currently sufficient?

There we go, that's all i've got for the moment... :) If you don't like any of the subjects then no need to bother giving an opinion on them... unless you want to voice a complaint about the way the question is put, or something like that... but any that you do feel are worthwhile topics of discussions, please feel free to fire away!
Peace Out Peoples,
Leah :D
