Stripes the Eco Cat Project
An eco-cat is perhaps a ridiculous idea, as cats are not regarded as particularly eco-friendly. However, children can relate to him as he also misunderstands the ‘eco-thing’ as he tries to go ‘green’.
I heard my humans talking about a cricket named Abie or Hash or something. I only know one cricket – the one who kept me awake last night with his loud chirping. So I asked my humans if Abie and Hash also chirp loudly.
They laughed and said, “Only if they play Australia”.
Stripes the Eco-Cat is an environmental education tool that links classroom learning to the real world. It contextualises the curriculum and makes learning relevant and helps to improve proficiency in literacy and language skills.
The stories are posted on Stripes’ own page on the Whale Coast Conservation website, Facebook and in Whale Talk magazine.
