Favorite Animal Alpacas are social herd animals that live in family groups consisting of a territorial alpha male, females and their young. Alpacas warn the herd about intruders by making sharp, noisy inhalations that sound like a high-pitched bray. The herd may attack smaller predators with their front feet, and can spit and kick. Their aggression towards members of the canid family (coyotes, foxes, dogs etc.) is exploited when alpacas are used as guard llamas for guarding sheep. geographic region nearctic introduced palearctic introduced neotropical native australian introduced The alpaca originated from Peru.

Remains of alpaca found at elevations closer to sea levels suggest that alpaca once had a wider geographical distribution and that the reduction of its range started with the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores and their introduced livestock. In the 1980s alpacas started to be exported to other countries for farming purposes. Nowadays, alpacas can be found in countries such as the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and the Netherlands, among others. In spite of the increase in alpaca farming outside its native territory, it has been estimated that 99% of the world population of alpacas is found in South America.The native range of Lama pacos includes the central and southern Andes from Peru to Argentina at elevations of up to 4800 meters.

Transcript: Who can help? My solution: I was recently made aware of this issue when my friend started going through the process of becoming a foster parent & mentioned that she was going to start stocking up on all sizes of clothes and supplies so she can try to be prepared for any age child. I think that the situation is jarring enough for both the foster child and the foster parents and more help should be provided at the time the child arrives at the home. these children have been through enough - the least we can do is make sure they have more than the clothes on their backs when they arrive at a new home. Clothing & Supplies for Foster Children What's the problem? A child can arrive at a foster home at anytime of the day or night, some with only the clothes on their back. It is up to the foster parents to quickly procure the proper supplies to care for the child like clothes, hygiene products, diapers, formula, etc. A clothing and supplies bank for foster children. local schools and churches to hold clothing/diaper drives & fund raisers local businesses to donate supplies or to become sponsors DCF & Community Based Care of Central Florida to ensure foster parents are aware of us and/or to organize a way we can send supplies with the child Imagine getting a call at two in the morning that you will have a three month old in your care by seven AM . Why it is important to me: I would contact: A place foster parents or DCF can come get supplies they need for foster children at no cost to them. Free 'starter kits' for all age children including several appropriate outfits, hygiene products, and baby needs.

Transcript: Children for Children Art and Mindfulness Interactive Exhibitions Charities Culture An education programme 'Children for Children' that connects diverse cultures with Art and Mindfulness. Our mission is to raise profit for children's charities through exhibitions and interacting with programmed work. Through creative, courageous and collaborative activities we aim to bridge the gap between social disadvantage and society. Culture Culture Although most children have mastered basic grammar, phonology and a reasonably large vocabulary for everyday learning and play there are nevertheless individual differences in areas that are related to achievement in formal learning settings, including: - language acquisition - language comprehension - understanding of numbers and causation - the knowledge of the world around them Bowman, B., Donovan, S., Burns, S. and Council,N. (2000). 'Eager to Learn: Educating our Presschoolers. Washington: National Academies Press. Art and Mindfulness Art and Mindfulness 'Creative activities ease us into a process of focus, concentration, absorbtion and flow which is the same process we experience when we are meditating'. 'This is why drawing, painting, colouring, photography, art journaling and writing are naturally mindful'. 'If you have no meditation experience or find it difficult to calm your mind, sit still and meditate, then creative activities are a wonderful way to enhance capacity for focus, concentration, inner peace and calm'.

Interactive Exhibitions Interactive Exhibitions Each exhibition will last for 2-3 weeks in an art gallery, venue or organisation, which will be ticketed at an accessible price to ensure diversity of the audience. 70% of the profits will be shared between the stakeholder of the exhibiton and collaborative charity and 30% will be regenerated back into the project to ensure that its cycle is sustainable. Charities Charities The Charity Register data for the year ending 31 December 2016, suggests that there were over 167,100 Charities in England and Wales. In 2016 the estimated income of the UK voluntary sector was £73.1 billion, according to the Charity Commission. We want to contribute to this income through our project to ensure that charities continue to meet their aims, objectives and action for change. Parliament (2017).
