Girls Celebrate Earth Day in Suriname


The Girl Guides and Scouts in Suriname walked around Independence Square with burning candles as the lights were turned out, joining with about 150 other participants—including Minister of Natural Resources Jim Hok and Regional Director of the World Wildlife Fund Dominique Plouvier—in the worldwide observance of Earth Hour. At the end of their walk the Girl Guides heard speakers briefly discuss the necessity of conserving the world’s resources.
