My GTT Experience

Ambassador for GTT Italia

Being a GTT ambassador for me means communicating to others the importance of nature that is around us.
I was lucky and privileged to meet Theodora and the team of people who talk about important messages, especially Ellie.
There are many problems that with Green Teen Team we have looked at the world in a different way, such as the recycling of waste, in particular plastic, the world of tortoises and turtles, the constant destruction by humans of many habitats of important animal species.
Moreover, in the last few years I have had the opportunity to meet many new people, in part strangely enough for which it was the need to talk in English very useful for my growth.
The Summer Camps in England were very effective for this!
In recent years I have had the opportunity to follow the recovery of some wild birds that were then released with the members of GTT and it was a great incentive to learn to watch the world around us.
I learned that we can do a lot for them. At the Parco Natura Viva we have created the partners with GTT and Lipu (of Verona). Recently we have worked with very small wild birds.

It is important to learn what are the species that live with us in our world and understand what they need and maybe try to preserve as much as possible even their ecosystem as trees for example, essential to provide nesting places, to protect them from bad weather and provide him with the food they eat.

For example, the species that could use our nests and that are around you now are:
Common sparrow (Passer domesticus)
Passera mattugia (Passer montanus)
Pettirosso (Erithacus rubecula)
Blue tit (Parus coeruleus)
Great Tit (Parus major)
Green woodpecker (Picus viridis)
Redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus)
Flycatcher (Muscicapa striata)
If you want, you can study them a little better and maybe make a map of all of the species that we can recognize together.
