    Hi I am Annie. I am 10. Guess what I'm from China!!!! My big Sis is from Hunan Province. I bet you think I am young but I have a hobby of watching, and looking up endangered animals. When I was in China a few years ago my mom brought me to a panda reserve. I got to hold and play with some of the worlds cutest animals. The Great panda as well as the red panda. It showed me how much we need them and they need us. When I was looking though my mail I saw the cover of the Colby mag. and I told my mom I had to comunicate with the person who did it it all. At school i was the only person who wanted to expand the numbers of the endangerd animals. When I read it I had hope that someday all animals will be off the list.
