A SUCCESSFUL START FOR THE ECO-PATROLS

COMPETING FOR THE “BIGGEST LITTLE FRIEND OF ANIMALS-BLFA 2014” AWARD – AFA’S NOMINATION FOR CHILDREN

 

 

On April 12th AFA gathered the first candidates for competition BLFA 2014 in the ”Eco-patrol” category. Among the verdancy of “Studentski” park, despite the chilly weather, Anna, Denis, Martin, Kremena, Elitsa, Kristian… - children from 8th School in Sofia received their Eco-patrol cards from the major of “Studentska” region, Mr. Dimiter Dilchev. The young major can be proud of the participation of all the schools in the region.

The participants were congratulated by favorite and well-known artists: Milena and Yoanna, “Ilkova theater” – devoted friends to AFA and the animals

“Today the owners, who are walking their pets in the park, have a chance to see the world through the eyes of our Eco-patrols. Because they have something to teach them: to cherish the nature and respect the animals!” – these were the opening words of AFA’s chairperson Aksinia Bosneva which marked the start of the first eco-action for the competitions of the Nominations.

Reporters from the National Bulgarian Television headed by Karina Karaniotova interviewed the Eco-patrols.

AFA was pleasantly surprised by the action’s results: more than 30 dog owners were inquired. They also received the leaf-let “AlVi for eco-city”, reminding them the rules for a dog’s good care-giving. All the dog owners were carrying plastic bags so the park will stay clean after their walk.

Up-coming are the Eco-patrols actions in Peshtera city and “Krasno selo” region in Sofia.

Stefana Drianovska, AFA’s ambassador abroad, will familiarize the participants with the wonderful greetings that were sent to them by various animal friends around the world. The first greeting is by Merritt Clifton, the American editor of Animal People:

“As participants in the "Biggest Little Friend of Animals" educational activities, all of you are helping to do the work that I looked for ways to do at your age. Each of you have found your own useful ways to contribute to reducing what my now deceased animal advocate friend Henry Spira called "the universe of suffering."

What you may not realize is that you are not only reducing animal suffering in your own place and time, but also contributing to the future of humanity. The ethic of kindness and compassion that you help to advance today will help to establish a kinder, more compassionate world for your children, and their children, and perhaps eventually for worlds far beyond our imagination.

Thank you!
