“I want to express how being and feeling like a guardian of nature has helped my personal and mental growth. It has helped me see things differently. My life changed and took a great turn. Now I can’t see rubbish lying on the floor, because at once I pick it up. I like to recycle, I like to plant, I like to take care of nature and teach other children to do it. I don’t like to see burning garbage, and if I see someone polluting, I immediately feel intrigued, and I speak to them so they don’t. My sister Sharick is also a guardian. We are 2 guardians in my family! I want to thank Guardians of Nature for everything I´ve learned and become. ”

“Service to the community from teaching is something that has always moved me. Creating awareness until materializing a goal, with small actions that I can decide, propose and share is what makes the difference … this has been Guardians for me. Successfully getting students to not only listen, but also to act is gratifying. Guardians of Nature has allowed us to tackle problems that concern us all.They provided us with the tools for teaching children to use their own skills to solve a global problem. ”

It is a privilege and honor to be a Guardian of Nature. It has raised my awareness of the environment and given me respect and love for nature. I am proud to teach my classmates and adults what it means to be a Guardian”.
“I have done activities such as going with my classmates and my mom to pick up trash in the river behind my school and picking up trash from the street so that it does not reach the sea. One day I went to the Nosara river mouth with the Guardians to collect micro plastic so that the animals of the sea don’t die. I am very happy to help nature and I want to continue helping. “
