"It has been an honour to collaborate with the Bern Convention to raise awareness about the carelessness of introducing species into habitats different of their own, endangering other local fauna and flora. Love of nature implies being responsible, even if this means not having those animals that we like (so much) at home. I hope that the alternative presented here to replace the real animal by a self-made one with recycled materials, serves not only for promoting the love for animals and ensuring their wellbeing, but also to boost children’s creativity."
