#10- tie yourself to a tree and yell at everyone to save the environment



                                   

According to research, there are 23,000 species of trees in the world. When you think about it, that's an awful lot of different trees. Personally, my favorite are the palm trees that grow in desert-like climates. Whenever I see one it reminds me of when I went to Dominican Republic- the path to the beach consisted of a long, intimidating row of palm trees, all beaming down on me. From a 9 year old perspective, it was almost as bad as being stranded in a creepy forest, especially since some of them were hundreds of years old. They looked like they might snap at any moment.

Luckily for me, there is only really one type of tree that grows in the country fields near where I live. I'd describe them as leafy and tall, but that pretty much covers the description of the 23,000 other trees on the planet. Whilst I really enjoyed doing #10, I must admit I got a few strange looks from passing walkers- even a dog looked at me strange. Unfortunately, I didn't actually gather many crowds or supporters during my mini tree campaign, however, I am proud of myself for carrying it out. Even if it did mean ruining a quiet family picnic in the field next to us..

Whilst this blog post was just for a laugh, it has made me more aware of the amazing campaigns that are working extremely hard in order to protect the thousands of trees that are in potential danger.



This also reminded me of my citizenship GCSE project, where you 
had to campaign for something you felt strongly about- me and my
friends chose to advocate against animal testing.
Has anybody ever campaigned or spoke up
about something they feel strongly about?
