Marky and Florence Saving the Environment & Wild Animals!
Wendy the tiger was rushing in the magical woods that were the only woods that animals could talk. She saw a clearing in the distance, she quickly ran there to see what was going on. Then she heard some voices nearby. She shouted curiously, “Hello? Is anyone there? Hello?” At that moment, there came a loud and low voice, “Yes! Who are you?” Wendy peeked through the clearing and saw three animals. One was an African elephant, next to it was an orangutan and behind them was a black rhino. 
Wendy was panting and decided to come out and she said, “H-hi!” The three animals screamed, “ AHHHHHH!!!” “ Please don’t be startled,” said Wendy softly. Then she asked, “What happened here?” The black rhino introduced herself and her friends, “ My name is Rhiny the Rhino and that is Orange the Orangutan and Ellie the Elephant.” Orange explained that they were having an  emergency meeting here. The humans came all the way here and were destroying their habitats.

Ellie continued the conversation, “My house has been destroyed by the greedy humans. The forest areas the size of three hundred football fields are destroyed every hour. I have to move. I am still finding a home.” Wendy felt a deep pang of sorrow for Ellie.

Ellie told Wendy again, “One day I saw my friend laying on the ground dead. There was a hunter near him. He cut his tusk then made sure no one was looking then he tiptoed away. Therefore, I followed him quietly. I hid bush to bush. The hunter did not find me. He came to an end of the forest. There was a wall in front of him. He hit a few bricks and a door opened. A short while later, I pressed the same brick and the door opened. I stuck my head inside to see. It was a factory! I was so curious, so I went inside. I was amazed with its spacious area. I saw the hunter put the tusk in a machine and a moment later it came out in pieces. It was shaped like a tooth. Then he put it in another machine and it came out with a string on top. Wendy, they were making ivory necklaces! That’s what the hunters are doing to us.”

Wendy hit the roof and said desperately, “The humans did some cruel things to my kind too. The humans are hunting more and more tigers. They want my claws, teeth and fur to make them wealthy and warm. We are in great pain when people take our fur, so I have to keep on moving away and now I am the only tiger in my pack that survived.”

Rhiny sighed, “ I am like a gardener. I eat the tips of the plants and stop them from growing too fast, but humans don’t appreciate what I’m doing. In fact, they even killed my kind for horns. They hunted down my parents when I was fifteen. Since then, I had to live by myself for a long time until I met you guys. At the age of sixteen, the humans cut my horns off. Although a few years later, it grew back, it was not as sharp as before. Once there were over five hundred rhinos in my pack, but now there are only two rhinos. The other rhino went to another forest. We split up.”

Orange scratched his head. He used sign language and screeched, “My home was burned down by the fires. Humans were camping but left the fires on when they were sleeping.The fires got out of control. They were all over the forest. My family and I soaked our bodies in the river. Next my brother and sister grabbed a tree branch and swung to another tree to rescue the baby orangutans, but they never came back. My dad and mom brought me to another tree and left me there. I knew they would go back to help my brother and sister. Then I never saw them again.”
