Romario Valentine 10th Birthday

Personal message

Donate Via Snapscan

Welcome to Romario’s 10th Birthday BIRD HABITAT RESTORATION and REFORESTATION campaign for BIRDS OF EDEN and ZEITZ FOUNDATION.

My name is Delsha. I am the mother to 9-year-old Romario and have created this campaign on his behalf. 

Earth Shaker, Romario has decided that his 10th birthday gift for the 26th of July 2021, will be to restore habitats for biodiversity and to leave a legacy for other children and generations to come.

Last year, he raised funds for 900 endangered birds at Umgeni River Bird Park, Durban, South Africa with the assistance of donations from friends, family and fellow eco-warriors. The “Inspire to Conserve” campaign helped his feathered friends during the challenging lockdown.

Romario has been an active environmentalist for the past 4 years. He is Ocean Sole’s youngest Ambassador who has cleaned the beach over 150 times.

He commenced a self-funded tree planting campaign in August 2020. To date he has sponsored 26 trees on 4 continents. Therefore, showing his commitment to helping the environment.

Romario is currently working with the U.N.C.C.D "United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification" to help combat Land Degradation in the Sahel and Sahara region in Africa "THE GREAT GREEN WALL"  for Desertification and Drought Day that will take place on the 17th of June 2021.

He will also feature in Leisa Stewart-Sharpe and Lydia Hall’s book "What a Wonderful World" as a young environmentalist. It will be released on the 19th of August 2021.

BIRDS OF EDEN, Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape, is home to 3,500 birds. They are Africa’s largest free-flight bird sanctuary. Forest birds, such as the Knysna Turaco “Loerie” are on the decline due to habitat destruction caused by deforestation.

With your assistance, Romario would like to help support the completion of the 30 x 30m Aviary for abandoned African Grey Parrots. These intelligent birds are critically endangered, almost extinct in the wild due to illegal trade where they are subjected to extremely appalling treatment and abuse.

ZEITZ FOUNDATION, Kenya is a non-profit tree conservation organisation. In 2020, they planted 100,000 Acacia trees in the shape of a rhino, combining art and nature. Their reforestation program aims to plant 1 million Acacia trees over the next 10 years. Trees like Acacia Karroo provide food for monkeys, giraffes, black rhinos, impalas, nyalas and kudus. The roots contain nitrogen bacteria that help with soil fertility and prevent soil erosion. Trees are vital for the survival of humans and biodiversity. They also help reduce carbon emission in the air and reduce global warming.

Thank you for your support.
