Davies recently contacted me to say that whilst he was extremely grateful
for the donations of pens, books and other such items, he has become
somewhat inundated with them now. What is really needed to keep the
good work going is people who are able to spend at least a few weeks
(preferably a month) to assist in teaching and/or wildlife monitoring.
People with special skills are particularly needed but willing volunteers
can be trained. Of course the other thing that is urgently needed
is monetary donations to provide finance for the good work at Yonok
required at Yonok Wetlands
work performed by Mick Davies and Dowroong Danlamajak at Yonok
Wetlands continues and increases in scale. A large number of
local villagers and monks are now receiving English lessons and
signs to encourage the protection of wildlife are being posted around
the site. In addition to these activities, surveying of birds, insects
and other fauna along with the local flora is required and with
this in mind volunteers to assist with these tasks are needed.
with the appropriate skills to help with teaching and/or surveying
should contact Mick Davies: firstname.lastname@example.org
donations in the form of money and teaching/surveying materials are
also urgently required. Materials to use in the teaching of children
would be particularly welcome due to the large numbers attending lessons;
anyone visiting the area for birdwatching might be able to deliver
materials such as stationary or text books for use in the project.
Again, please contact Mick Davies if you think that you can help.
