Bicycle Recycle in Kosovo

In Kosovo in general, but especially in our community people are not aware of the significance and benefits of recycling, toward the environment, economy and health. We want to introduce recycling through reparation of the bikes that we are going to collect in several communities. We are also going to spread the idea to the people who will get them and those are the most vulnerable people in our communitiy. We think that that way of raising awareness and creativity can be done with recycling of the "trash" which is in our homes, city, schools and so on, and we hope that this project can serve as a pilot project for other projects to come.Read more here

Work with Sea Turtle Species

Four of the eight sea turtle species in Mexico (all of which are endangered) come to nest on the coasts of Chiapas. The beaches where the work camps take place are some of the 144 beaches in Mexico where the sea turtles come to nest, and they are also within the 22 beaches in Mexico where there is a high level of turtle nest looting. In an effort to rescue them, the sea turtle eggs as well as the recently born sea turtles, the sea turtle sanctuaries collect the eggs and rebury them in protected areas in order to keep them safe. Once they hatch, the sea turtles are recorded and set free under the projection of the sanctuary staff. The sanctuaries are open to the public and provide information about the sea turtles and the work that the conservation provides.Read more here
