Monkey of the Week -- Emini!
Our Monkey of the Week this week is Emini! Listen to this awesome story:
A few weeks ago in Emini’s country it was Seaweek so she and other volunteers went out collecting rubbish from the beach. And Emini did such a great job she was interviewed for her local newspaper!
Emini said that amongst other stuff, she picked up a heap of cigarette butts. These can be toxic as they break down and if there are a lot of them it can affect our wildlife. Check out all the cigarette butts they picked up -- there are about 1800 of them! Yuk!
Emini said in the newspaper interview: “Me and my friends have recently been aware of the environment. At lunchtime we just all go together and pick up the rubbish.”
Woohoo!!! We know that Emini and her friend, PurpleTanya, have been big supporters of PERcY’s Pick Up Trash Friday and have commented and tweeted about what they’ve been doing. Emini also told us that MiniMonos made her more aware of looking after the environment. That means that we monkeys are making a difference in the real world. How awesome is that!
Great job Emini and well done for being Monkey of the Week!
p.s. Wow! I just checked my messages and found out that Emini has a brand new baby brother! A huge congratulations again to you and your family, Emini! :-)
