As a volunteer, I worked with Engage animals. They are an organization that aims to teach the youth about animal rights. We, as a group, met with them for a couple hours discussing the ways they could improve the way they reach youth and how they could share their message more effectively. We also put up some fliers around the south shore because that is an area they have a really hard time reaching most of the people. Lastly, we were supposed to attend their workshop on Saturday, Dec 9th but unfortunately, I will not be able to attend because of work.
I did volunteering with the organization A Horse Tale Rescue that help mistreated and abandoned horses. First, I went to the open house on a Saturday and they show me the barn and present me the horses and their story. After that, I went to help them whenever I’m free for the feeding job. It is either the morning, during the lunch or at the diner that they need people. I fed the horse, gave them their special nutrient, groom them and clean the outside paddock and the inside of the barn.

different areas around the World were affected by climate change, and the video #7 describing how Shellfish are part of the endangered species, really helps put in perspective 'how much we have to lose'. It's
great to see how many organizations are currently taking part in solving this major issue.
