Ways to Make a Difference

There are lots of ways to make a difference to wildlife, marine life, working animals and our pets, and let's face it, some things come more easily to us than others.  Some are very quick ways to make a difference (e.g. signing a petition) whereas others (e.g. making a garden pond) take longer.

So here are some tools you can use to make a difference and find things to do which fit into your life.   Remember, every action makes a difference; every stitch helps, as does every stamp
