A school pupil is passionately appealing to people to help give animals a secure future.

Ysgol Tir Morfa pupil Macey is the KS4 winner for Denbighshire County Council’s Postcards from the Future competition.

Pupils were asked to deliver a message back through time to help us understand how to create a better future for ourselves in the county and across the world.

They were asked to imagine we had moved to 2050 and send a postcard back to their younger selves to explain how climate change is potentially impacting on their lives.

The Council received a total of 350 entries for the competition and the winning entries were chosen by Zero Carbon Britain at The Centre for Alternative Technology from a competition designed to tackle climate change back from the future.

Zero Carbon Britain picked Macey’s entry after she impressed the organisation with her passion for wanting to save the animals. Macey appealed back from the future for people to protect the homes of animals, safeguarding them for generations to come.

Cllr Barry Mellor, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “The passionate plea from Macey is what struck me. We should support our local biodiversity, our animals, as we have got so many diverse species here alone in Denbighshire.

“Her entry also really galvanises the work we are doing in Denbighshire to protect animals such as the Little Terns, Otters, Adders and others. Reading her words really encourages us to do more to safeguard our biodiversity going forward.”

Councillor Arwel Roberts, Chairman of Denbighshire County Council said: “This was just a simple but very powerful message put by Macey to encourage us all do more for the animals we share our living space with across Denbighshire and beyond.”

All winners will receive a selection of environmental books for the school, a talk from the County Council’s Biodiversity Team and a collection of plug plants to help create or improve a wildflower area. Their winning postcards will also be read out at a future Full Council meeting

The competition was also supported by the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) zero carbon Britain. CAT is an educational charity dedicated to researching and communicating positive solutions for environmental change.
