Animal Adventure Comment of the Week
Mirabelle Hoist - Age 11 - From AUSTRALIA
I believe we should place natural species inside the habitat because they are better adapted to the environment around them than the invasive species and thus will be able to get rid of the invasive species with ease.
We should not use pesticides or any other chemicals because they are very harmful to the environment as well and will do a lot of damage to the wetlands.
We should not send people in to manually remove the invasive species because humans rely on technology too much these days and are more than likely to cause damage to the environment with this overuse of technology.

Caroline - 13 - UNITED KINGDOM
I woke up to the sun shining down on my cushion, the thuds as Mrs. Wright rushed to get ready and the heavy whisper of a young girl sat beside me, telling me, "Its ok Boris, I'll be home after school and then we can go in the garden and play with your toys." She leaned down beside me and kissed my wooly coat.
"Hurry Samantha, go get your bag, or we may be late," Mrs. Wright said, as she tapped Sam on the back.
"Ok mother," Sam stood up and ran upstairs, and that was the last I saw of her until the afternoon.
"Boris, Boris, I'm home," my ears pricked and my tail wagged, it was Sam: she was home. We ran into the garden, but instead of picking up my ball, she sat on the floor and called me over. I sat beside her and she started twiddling the grass around her fingers. "It's my birthday party tomorrow and all my friends will be here. I'm going to have a huge cake and banners and balloons, its going to be so much fun. She looked up at me and I could see in her eyes that there was something wrong. "Daddy can't come, Mummy said he has to work, he works all the time, its not fair."
Like a good pet, I lay down on her lap to comfort her.
The next morning I heard, "Yeah, its my birthday, Boris wake up," Sam was shaking me like mad and as soon as my eyes opened she ran out into the garden, I followed her. She was so excited, "It's going to be great! Within the next hour more children arrived at our door all screaming and shouting. Eventually after settling down, they all ate cake. Sam gave me a little bit under the table, then some more and then eventually I felt so sick and full, I ran into the house and curled up on my cushion. Sam came in the house after finishing her cake and cuddled me so tight.
"The only thing that could make my birthday better would be if Daddy was here," she said, shortly after letting out a huge sigh.
Then to everyone's surprise, the gate opened and Mr. Wright came through it.
"Daddy you came!" Sam shouted.
"I sure did sweetheart, I sure did!"
