Six-foot-tall emu that goes by the name Darwin escaped from her family’s yard in Michigan and ended up running more than a mile away. The eight-year-old emu unlatched a gate itself and ran off. The next morning, the emu was spotted roaming free in a neighbor’s backyard sprinkler. The owner Susan and Kim Churchwell were happy to bring their emu back home, but they were also impressed by the escape. Some people think that emus are not smart but we humans should give them credit.
Not all people care about animals their habitat or the environment and they think it’s OK to pollute. By doing that every year humans kill over 50 billion sea and land animals. By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. Help make that stop. Take care of the earth.
