This week, I have been reading about some of our Global Concerns at UWCSEA to prepare for our interviews with the teachers who lead and work with the GCs at our school.
Bali Sharks is a Global Concerns Service in our school. Bali Sharks is located in Southern Bali, Indonesia.
Bali Sharks mission is to raise awareness about sharks in Bali. Their reason is that many sharks are getting left to die in the oceans. Meanwhile the fishermen are fishing for the fish but sharks get caught in their line, what happens next is the fishermen either take them out of the net and throw them in the sea or throw them in with the net still on their body. Research shows that 90% of sharks have been killed since 2006. The reason they are most killed is because of their teeth for jewelry and shark fin soup.
Questions to ask Mr. Lawrence during the interview on Thursday
- What are Bali Sharks assets?
- How is the GC planning to make a difference?
Tiger Watch is a Global Concerns Service in our school. Tiger Watch is located in Rajasthan, India.
Their mission is to reduce poaching and improve animal conservation in India. They want to make a safer environment for the tigers to roam. They also would like to protect the remaining tigers in India. Brook told me that Cambodia, the tiger were killed for their fur. He shared that after they breed the tigers, the tigers are sent to other countries where the animals are in threat of becoming extinct to breed. The way they do that is by having fundraisers to protect the tigers and raise the awareness. They also support ex-poachers and hope that they do not poach the animals again.
Questions to ask Mr. Verrill during the interview on Thursday
