"I am Dogan. I am seven years old. I live in Turkey. I am worried about all the animals in the world so I am going to run in the WCS Run for the Wild on April 29th for my birthday from Fethiye in Turkey.
I care about saving TURTLES, and I hope you do, too. I really care about turtles. They are cute. They have beautiful designs on their shells. They are cool. I am worried that their environment is going because people are taking over the water. I am especially worried about the sea turtles. I'm worried about the garbage killing them and all the animals."
The money I raise will help fund WCS’s critical work to save TURTLES and other wildlife around the globe.
WCS is working to give wildlife a fighting chance. The organization recently launched a plan to conserve the world’s largest wild places in 15 priority regions. Together, those are home to more than 50% of the world’s biodiversity!
I want to help, which is why I’m running in the WCS Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on April 29th. The 5k run supports WCS in establishing and helping to manage parks and reserves, safeguarding animals from poaching with active monitoring and patrolling, and inspiring communities to protect their local wildlife.
WCS has the reach and the expertise to make a difference, but the organization needs our help to make that that protection a reality. That’s where you and I come in.
With your support, I hope to raise my target of $300. Even $10 would make a big difference for XX.
P.S. Not only does my run support a great cause – it's also a really fun day running along the marina in Fethiye! If you have an animal near and dear to your heart, join me on April 29. You can register here: http://e.wcs.org/site/TR?fr_id=1190&pg=entry
Thank you for your support. I can't wait to tell you about my run through the Bronx Zoo!
