Volunteer Fair Play Team from Załęcze Małe decided to help our “small neighbors” – animals.

They organised a collection of chestnuts and acorns to provide food for forest animals during the winter. The aim of the action was to increase public awareness within nature. The subject is very important because animals are an integral part of the entire ecosystem on our planet. The action was carried out on October 20, 2020 in local floodplains and in areas hard to access to animals.

— Our volunteers are scouts. They have a group and are also socially active. In the second task of the Fair Play Program, we helped animals by organising a collection of chestnuts and acorns. These were then handed over to the forester, who transported them to the forest.

— commented team leader Lidia Pecyna.

In the collection of chestnuts and acorns for the benefit of forest animals, 10 young volunteers of Fair Play from Załęcze Małe were actively involved. The team consisted of 6 girls and 4 boys.
