IF A hamster, a rabbit, a turtle and a guinea pig raced, which would win? This question was answered on October 25, when the Ekocentrum Envirosvet centre organised an event in Stupava for families with pets, the SITA newswire wrote.
The company’s aim was to promote environmental education among children and teach them “to love nature,” SITA wrote.
“We wanted to do something for parents and their children, as many children who have a pet just sit at home,” Martina Rakovanová, head of Ekocentrum Envirosvet, told SITA.
The fastest pet was awarded a diploma and a supply of feed. In fact, none of the participants left empty-handed, or, rather, empty-pawed. They all received some feed to take away.
Ekocentrum Envirosvet plans to host the event again in the future, perhaps as soon as next spring.
"Maybe then we will even include dogs,” Rakovanová said. “We would do it somewhere outside to allow for the activities.”
