THE ENVIRO-KID!

An Enviro-Kid is a child who is aware of the importance of caring for his/her environment and is willing to share his knowledge with others.  The Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP) in collaboration with other organisations have publications available to help children become more aware of the endangered species in the Wider Caribbean Region and what they can do to help protect them.
