The Borneo Project has created a CowBird story collection as a place to share your personal stories, thoughts, and experiences regarding Borneo, indigenous people, rainforests, environmental activism, and wildlife. The aim of this story collection is to educate, inspire, and connect with others who care about and wish to celebrate the world’s rainforests and all they have to offer.
Never been to Borneo? No Problem! This is your chance to share a story about why you care about conservation and what inspires you.
Follow these steps to share your story:
1. Visit The Borneo Project’s collection on CowBird to view the collection and read the stories of others.
2. Create a FREE CowBird account so you can “Tell a Story”.
3. Once you’ve written and customized your story (you can add photos and/or audio) click “who” under connections and tag “The Borneo Project” as a character so we can add your story to our collection
Don’t know where to start? Begin by asking yourself: “What does Borneo mean to me?”
Here are some more ideas to get you started:
1. What can we learn/have you learned from indigenous knowledge? Why is it important?
2. What first ignited your passion for environmental issues?
3. Share a story about your own experience with wildlife or your travels to a high conservation area.
4. Choose a photo from your travels and share what is happening in that photo.
5. What would you miss most if the rainforests/coral reefs disappeared?
6. What is your relationship with nature and what has shaped it? Parents? Religion? Race? Gender? Ethnicity? Culture? Money? Family vacations? The neighborhood you grew up in?
Feel free to be creative. This is a place to share with others what you think they should know about wildlife conservation and environmentalism.
