Our New Green Charity: A Rocha Canada – Posener’s MMA Vancouver
In this post I am going to provide some more information about A Rocha Canada and the Brooksdale Environmental Center.
We are now supporting, via the sale of grocery tote bags and taking donations, the Brooksdale Environmental Center and A Rocha Canada, which is a local green charity with far reaching international and global objectives. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these bags will go to this charity.
If people want to donate to this charity online, that can happen. If they access the website via this page or the previous post from our website, we can keep track of our donation totals, which would be inspiring. www.Arocha.ca
The more I learn the more inspired I become to be part of the solution.
Environmental Challenges are one of our greatest challenges that need attention. I have listed 3 items of concern, which are listed on the bags:
1. Save the Salmon: A Arocha is involved in this specific conservation concern with the Little Campbell River, to provide a specific example. Actually they are involved in many projects. This is a local concern to help people with identification. Here is some information from their website:
A Rocha is committed to the conservation and restoration of the natural world through both scientific research and practical conservation projects. Our scientific work provides the strong foundation needed for informed protection and management. Our conservation projects are aimed at slowing or reversing the trends of habitat loss that are affecting many species. In practical terms, this means we are lifting binoculars skyward to conduct bird surveys, removing invasive species in order to restore salmon streams, and collecting data on a myriad of species in BC, Manitoba and Ontario.
At A Rocha we appreciate the strong connection between a healthy environment and the health of the human community. Therefore, where possible, we work with local landowners and residents to understand their concerns and collaborate with them in the good act of stewardship.
2. Environmental Stewardship:
This is a more general concept highlighted by one of A Rocha’s main headlines: Caring for Creation. A Rocha has branches all over the world.
Website: A Rocha is building a network of hands-on conservation projects in communities across the nation, ( and the world) . Driven by local context, local needs and local leadership, the exact focus of each A Rocha project varies – ranging from gardens and farms, to watershed protection and habitat restoration. Whatever the focus, each project involves research, education and hands-on opportunities for people to get involved in environmental conservation.
3. Inspiring Hope:
There can be improvement. With conscientious attention and involvement or empowering those people and groups to do their good work, positive change can happen.
This is A Rocha’s aim:
In an environmental context often characterized by fear and paralysis, A Rocha is bringing hope through care of both people and places. We are preserving sensitive habitats and threatened species, growing organic food and feeding people living on low income, inspiring school children and training young people. A Rocha is changing the way people treat the earth.
Here is our previous post with some background, history of previous charitable campaigns and some basic explanation of win, win, win objectives.
Thank you for reading! If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. You can donate via purchase of the bags at the school or online via the website link on this page. Also here. http://www.Arocha.ca
