LIKE most six-year-olds, Chloe Tsangaris loves animals.

What sets her apart is Chloe is one of 10 children worldwide to be named as mini ambassadors for non-profit charity Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.

Dedication to save Australia's wildlife at such a young age might seem unusual, but Chloe's mother, Kylie Tsangaris said Chloe's passion was all her own.

“She' always loved animals,” Mrs Tsangaris said.

“We've read books to them both (Chloe and her brother) since they were teeny-weeny about wildlife.”

Mrs Tsangaris said to help her children not be afraid of animals, they were encouraged to both touch and hold different animals to learn what they felt like and how they moved.

“We didn't want our kids growing up with any fear,” she said.

“If they grow up learning, and knowing animals then they want to help them.”

Which is exactly the case for Chloe, who named turtles, koalas and red kangaroos as some of her favourite animals.

Chloe said residents should be helping native wildlife because they were “getting killed”.

“We have to save them so we can have more,” she said.

A charity event organised by Chloe and her mother is being held at Richlands this month, with all proceeds going towards Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.

In addition to music and entertainment by Elvis impersonator, Gabe Phoenix, the night will also include a silent auction and raffles.

• The charity event will be held at Queensland Lions on Saturday, October 24 from 8pm. Tickets will be $20 each. To book a table of 10, contact Kylie Tsangaris on 0416 140 665.
