Children preparing for the Animal Fair
The children in Mataglapa are drawing their favorite animals. Sadly these animals are all in danger of extinction. But they are doing these drawing with a lot of hope. The more we draw attention to these animals the more we will be able to come up with some solutions to stop their extinction. The drawings are part of our contest in the Fair about Animals in Danger of Extinction. We have a little less than a month before we have the fair on the 8th of Nov. in the Park of Stars.
