Some cartoons

Environmental education is crucial to approach local populations and raise awareness for conservation.

In 2001 one Peace Corps' volunteer, Carolyn LaFontaine, and a British illustrator, Alasdair Bright, created a small trilingual book on a young ibis taht wanted to play with children. It used a soccer as a link to attrack the interest of children towards this species that shares the habitat with them.

This book inspired another cartoon, this time in Syria. Alasdair added some drawings and the story was adapted to the local context.
