Dolphins, the Environment and You

Kiddie Toes Montessori School (KTMS) aims to be a “green school”, taking into consideration the environment and the society in all that we do – from our academic curriculum, learning materials, building and school plan, school policies and extra curricular activities.

We know how important it is to provide information relevant for the protection of our environment. That is why this summer, we have invited artists and advocates working to protect the environment.

We have invited Mr Guerrero “AG” SaƱo, 35, a marine mammal expedition photographer for the World Wide Fund for Nature, to do a mural of bottlenose dolphins.

AG is aspiring to paint 23,000 dolphins in different locations all over the country as a personal crusade to raise public awareness on dolphin slaughter. The number represented those killed yearly in Taiji, Wakayama, Japan, according to the US documentary film “The Cove.” He has so far painted 110 walls from as far as the Babuyan Island in the north down to the Tawi-Tawi Island in the south.

Painting dolphins are just the tip of the iceberg, it’s just the beginning and a jump off point to inform the public, particularly the children, about love for animals and the environment. The activity will not only serve as a public awareness on dolphin slaughter and protection, but also protection of the marine species as a whole, and how climate change and disregard for the environment will affect our friends in the ocean.

Isabela is blessed with a 208-km. coastline and is home to beautiful caves, coves, bays and rich marine life. That is why it is important for us to protect and preserve the marine creatures and environment.

On 14 MAY 2011, Sunday, AG, together with KTMS teachers, learners, parents and other volunteers and environment-lovers will paint and color dolphins on the walls of the KMTS fence and buildings.

The activity will be made more festive with the presence of the KTMS family, local artists and musicians and photographers.

When: 14 May 2011, 9am onwards
