National Trust of Australia (QLD) Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Enviro Warrior blogger, Patrick Brabant, in a new initiative to spread the word about wildlife conservation to Australia’s youth through a monthly blog penned by the Trust child member.
Patrick, 12, has been passionately involved in researching and promoting the importance of conservation methods that protect endangered species from a very early age. He was known for his involvement with Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary programs by the time he was six years old, most notably for opening the Frog Safehouse with Wildlife Supervisor of Reptiles, Michael Vella in 2009.
The new endeavour with Patrick will see him creating video blogs featuring monthly interviews with various National Trust of Australia (QLD) Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary wildlife experts. The interviews will cover a range of conservation hot-topics in a bid to spread the word about current threats to Australian wildlife. In addition to this, Patrick will be addressing the issue of what every person, regardless of their wildlife experience, can do to help preserve our beautiful animals.
National Trust of Australia (QLD) is thrilled to be facilitating this direct channel to Australian youth; as the conservationists of tomorrow, it is vital that we educate and equip our younger generations with the knowledge and passion required to preserve our native flora and fauna. Patrick’s charismatic dexterity and his overwhelming passion will provide a reliable voice of information to his peers that simply hasn’t been present previously.
“With CWS’s help Im looking forward to spreading the message about the importance of wildlife conservation,” Patrick said.
“I hope you enjoy the blogs and interviews and remember – Every action counts! Everyone can make a difference!”
Patrick has created his own website, www.patsendangeredanimals.com, Facebook page, “Enviro Warrior”, and Youtube channel, “enviro warrior”, on which his work can be viewed, in addition to the National Trust of Australia (QLD) Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary website.
