In our March Issue, 'The Gobi Desert', we explored one of the main threats to the Gobi’s incredible wildlife – mining for minerals. Of course, mining brings money to the country but it also destroys its land and the age-old customs. Ecotourism could be an alternative way to boost the country’s economy.

So, we challenged you to put your persuasive skills to the test to help to convince people to visit the Gobi desert and support tourism! Thank you to everyone who entered the competition. You certainly made the Gobi look like an unforgettable adventure!


Congratulations to our winners:

Eben, age 6, Cumbria Come on Safari in the Gobi Desert!


Ellis, age 9, Salisbury Tourists Come to the Gobi Desert


Szymon and Franek, ages 9 and 6, Leyland


Timmy, age 7, Portishead The Amazing Gobi Desert


Amy, age 8, Canada The Gobi Desert

Hi Ameena,

Thank you for your comment. We’ve just checked all of our entries and unfortunately, cannot find one from Arsalan. Please, can you email it to emma@ecokidsplanet.co.uk so that I can get it added to this page? Many thanks, Emma
