    Importance of Helping I would definitly take my time to help the organization however

    i would only do it the summer vaccations. The world today isextremely competitive so my study comes first.

    In the money side I would mostly help in the birds project. Birdsare the animal group most used in environmental education

    They are always close to people, even in the heart of big cities.

    Brazil is considered the second richest country in the world interms of bird variety

    Its potential is not explored as in other countriesin Costa

    Rica and in Peru, bird watching tourism constitutes a significantportion of the national income.
