Today we wanted to give a big shout out to our amazing friend and supporter, Tali. Wombat and I met Tali and his lovely family at Woodford Folk Festival whilst we were working at the Sea Shepherd stall. Tali, a dedicated green warrior already at the age of 8, impressed us with his amazing passion for defending and conserving the whales, the history keepers of this planet. We were both very inspired by his thirst for knowledge and enthusiasm for ocean conservation at such as young age. It was a pleasure to hang out with him at our stall which was a highlight of our time there, especially for Wombat.
This entry is to personally thank Tali and his family for their generous donation to our project which helped fund Wombat’s presence in the field. It is people like yourselves that make this project possible and we are so grateful for your support. I hope you know that you have played an integral role in helping the Filipino people rebuild a more sustainable and resilient future.
We also wanted to especially thank Tali’s sister, Alaeila, who blew Britt away during discussions about climate change and forest care. We feel very blessed to have met you both and look forward to hearing about your future endeavors. Wombat and I firmly believe that children like yourselves will lead the paradigm shift that is required for people around the world to realign themselves with nature, the support system for all life. This is why it is such a pleasure to work with the children of Barbaza who have already demonstrated their potential as champions of sustainability.
A big thanks to Tali & Alaeila’s Mum and Dad too. You should be very proud of your budding eco-warriors.
All of you are such amazing people and we look forward to seeing you on another project in the future perhaps.
Lots of love and gratitude,
Britt and Wombat
