A message from Ms. Adebiyi:
Last time (2009) as a school we raised $475.45 which went towards 2 funds; the Big Gift Rainforest as well as the Big Gift Sea Turtles. We worked along with PS226 in order to raise those funds. This year the project will be working solely on the Molino Pampa Community Reserve in northern Peru. This is a rainforest in the Andes is home to rare species such as; the Yellow-Tailed Monkey, Mountain Tapir, and the Speckled Bear. These species are threatened by habitat loss from deforestoration. Earth’s Birthday Project is also a charity known and backed by Terracycle in order to have funds raised to help in that effort.
