Much of the inspiration for our idea for progress was drawn from an initiative that is set up during the Christmas festive season: old Christmas trees are collected to be set up as shelters for the animals, to reinforce the reefs in the marshland areas that are beginning to weaken.
"Katrina" uprooted over half the trees in our region... Why not use these trees to strengthen our marshlands? Why not use this wood to give shelter to all these animal species that have also been suffering horribly since the hurricane...?
Man thought first and foremost about his own houses, but we think that it would be good to think about the survival of the animal species around us. Each day, tons and tons of tree trunks are brought to the waste collection centers... We would like to hope that this wood could be used for something useful!
We love our marshlands, we love the animals that take refuge there! We love our town, and not for anything in the world would we want to move away from it!
