    The endangered species in Indonesia!
    Hi my name is Andrew Wright; I am working on the issue of the endangered species that are in Indonesia. While I have been researching this topic I have found out that there are three main animals that are endangered are the Sumatran tiger, the pigmy elephant and the java rhinoceros. The most endangered animal in Indonesia at this very second is the Sumatran tiger. I have used many different ways to try to find some information including, Google news, Google, books and click view. The reason why I am interested and passionate about this topic dates back to grade 3 when one of my best friends got an SRC role at Mount Eliza Primary School and the first thing he said to the grade during his speech was that we need to stop using palm oil so the orang-utans and I fully agreed with him so I tried to get behind him and help him with this good cause and now I have researched a bit about the endangered species in Indonesia I would like to help even more. This person happens to be Oli who is my partner for this project.

    Hi, my name is Ryan and I am doing a topic on Drug Trafficking and why it is so serious but yet is being over looked by most. So far I have discovered that drug trafficking is quite serious and should have attention to stop it from being a problem, it should also be privately formed in police overwatched plantations to prevent robberies and illegal usage/stealing. Also I have learnt that one of the most used/trafficked drugs is cannabis coming in at 10% of Australia’s adult population using it, surveyed from 2009. I’ve used news articles off of Google News and other news websites, aiming towards drugs and then drug websites showing off usages, drug trafficking routes, cartels and other infamous drug traffickers through the world,
    The reason I am interested in this topic is because of the recent release of Schapelle Corby and with my interests towards the TV show Breaking Bad. It made me realise that the actual problem of drugs in real life is worse than TV shows take it to be
    I am working in a group on this topic with one other person and that person is Ryan Cooper, and together we are trying to find out how to solve drug trafficking!

    Well done Ryan(s). This is a very important and serious topic. This trade is worth billions of dollars and is ruining the lives of people everywhere. If we could find a solution, imagine how much money we’d save in law enforcement; money that could be spent on health, education and other important services. What’s the solution though? Keep working on this – drug trafficking affects everyone.

    Hi, my name is Oli.
    For my RTL project I am studying the huge issue of endangered species in Indonesia. Indonesia is home to some of the most endangered but beautiful animals in the world. So far I have discovered that if something isn’t done about it they could be extinct within the next 10 to 15 years. I have used a number of research techniques such as: Google, Books, Google news, interviews and personal experience. The reason that I am interested in this topic is because I have been to Borneo and seen it first hand. I think this is why I am so pationate about the issue. It had a big impact on my life. I am working in a group with Andy and we hope to find out what we can do to help the endangered species in Indonesia.

    Hi Oli,
    Some of the best projects are the ones that you have a personal connection to.I am really pleased that you are doing this and I’m sure you will produce a great piece of work. Hopefully this project will be the start of a longer passion for research and problem solving. This is a tough issue to find a solution to, but remember to keep your mind open and dig deep. Well done. T

    Hi my name is Caitlyn Howlett
    I’m working on the issue of domestic violence; so far I have learnt that the most domestic violence in Victoria is in Frankston. I enjoy this topic a lot; I learn new things that I’m interested with. I’m interested in this topic because this need to stop and when it happens it is always a big deal. There’s so many interesting story’s to do with domestic violence like Luke batty. I am working in a group with Lila, holly and myself.

    Thanks Caitlyn,
    This is a very serious and sad issue.You will need to be very sensitive in how you present this. Also you will also need to find some experts who can help you get accurate facts because this can become a very emotional issue for many people. Good work.

    Nike
    Hi my name is Jackson Dunne.
    I am working on the issue of Nike and their need to improve working conditions for their factory workers in china Vietnam and Haiti.
    So far I have discovered that people are illegally forced to work 65 hours a week.
    Nike publicly denies violating the legal minimum wage of 45 dollars a month.
    In china workers are illegally forced to pay their first months salary as a ‘deposit’ which they lose if they leave within a year.
    In china workers are subjected to chemical fumes, 177 times over the legal limit which can cause liver kidney and brain damage.
    I have used the internet to research this information.
    The reason I’m interested in this is because I have heard people talk about it.
    I had help from barb and Miss Bell.

    Great issue Jackson,
    Nike has been accused of using cheap labour for many years now. Nike claims that this isnt true, but maybe have a look at this website http://sweatshops-humanitarianissues.weebly.com/case-study-nike.html which claims that NIKE has been abusing people for a long time. We first must establish the facts.Here is a good documentary about NIKE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5uYCWVfuPQ that might also be useful. Also,it isn’t just NIKE that is accused of human rights abuses: other companies such as WalMart and the Gap have gained a bad reputation in some places.check out this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fve0xjEyk4U Good work

    Sup I’m Pip Kimpton!
    I am looking the topic Save the Tigers; because I believe that Tigers are loving animals and they might go extinct because of Tiger hunting I have supported two Tigers in the wild from WWF (World Wildlife Fund), so far I have discovered that 97% of our Tiger have been hunted by people in South China, Until the 20th century there were nine subspecies that probably numbered over 100,000 animals. That included the giant 300kilo, Siberian. I have used a number of research techniques such as The WWF official Website.
    The reason I am interested in this topic because I am a Tiger lover and Tiger hunting is just horrible it makes me sick. If people listen to me then we would probably have a Tiger as a pet, I wish, Tigers are my favourite animal because they are beautiful in every single way and going extinct like my other favourite animal (Tasmanian tiger).
    My video is about saving the Tigers; of course, I want my message to get across so that everyone that I know can save the tigers and then we can fight the tiger hunters together.

    Hi, my name is Pip Keresevic. I am working on the issue on anorexia nervosa and bulimia. So far, I have discovered that there are different types of ways to get anorexia like starving yourself, eating normally and then throwing up (as known as bulimia) and eating normally and over exercising. All these are very dangerous and can lead to death. Most people who get anorexia are jockeys, gymnasts, cheerleaders, actresses, runners, entertainers, models, dancers and male homosexuals. Also young women between the ages of 12-25 and over 10% of males get anorexia. The people who are at risk for bulimia are people with anxiety, depression and impulse control. The research techniques I have used are; google, books and documentaries. The reason I am interested in this topic is because I have read and seen stories of anorexic patients and I wanted to make a difference in stopping this terrible disease. I am working in a group with Maddi Leonard.

    Animal caging

    Hi, my name is Eliza Kidder, and I am doing research on animal caging.
    Animal caging is horrible and it forces animals to live in small cages and struggle to roll over or even stretch their wings. The WA government is putting free ranged chickens into cages so they can gain more money and I am going to talk to the canteen about pledging to be free ranged. I have contacted Amy Kidd, who is part of the animals Australia team, and she told me some ways to spread awareness. We are torturing animals for our own welfare!!!!!!!

    Stop animal caging!

    Hi i’m Violetta Minzenmay
    I am researching animal testing in cosmetics.
    It is a big issue and is so cruel. Some companies that use animal testing include: L’Oreal co, Sally Hansen, Revlon, Estee Lauder and Clinique. Why should animals suffer just so we can wear make up?! These animals are just like the pets we have at home dogs, cats, mice, rabbits etc. I am aiming to stop it completely and have already made contatct with different animal welfare organisations such as the RSPCA and Animal Welfare Victoria.
