Taking care of plants and animals, that’s not dumb! Are you strong as a lion? Be careful of the little things around you, the landscapes of Chatelaillon are very fragile. Are you smart as a monkey? Take the time to read our 8 rules for protecting nature, and share them with your friends. And if you’re still a chick, Dad will explain them to you! 🐤
Before we begin...
Why are the marshes of Chatelaillon so important?
The marshes are very rich to begin with! There are lots of plants, flowers and different animals. All together, they form an ecosystem. That just means they help each other to live and they don’t need you or me to be okay.
Second, marshes are very useful. When it rains a lot (often in winter), they form a big sponge that sucks up excess water and protects the land around it. Conversely, when it doesn’t rain enough, the marshes release the water they have well kept. Clever!
Wetlands are finally fragile. That’s why their nature must be protected. No driving in them in a car or making noise. Doesn’t anyone come bother you in your room? It’s the same for the swamps 😉
I don’t pick wildflowers to give to grown-ups.
If I want to make mom a pretty bouquet, I’ll ask one of Chatelaillon’s florists! 💐
