Teachers, engage your students this Earth Month!
Earth Month is a great time for students to become active in learning about and protecting biodiversity, and fundraising can be a powerful way to do just that.
Earth Rangers has developed a project, in collaboration with the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS), to protect important marine habitat on Canada’s west coast. Funds raised through the Earth Month is for the Animals initiative will contribute to important research of islands, reefs, and coastal environments in the Pacific, aiming to secure stronger conservation measures of this treasured ecosystem. This project will positively impact species like Killer Whales, Sea Otters and Tufted Puffins.

Visiting over 800 elementary schools across Canada annually, Earth Rangers travels from Whitehorse to St. John’s and everywhere in between, educating and inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders!
Participating in Earth Rangers school programs is an exciting and effective way to engage your students in environmental education and awareness, and inspire them to take action. Through our School Assembly, students learn about the natural history of Canadian wildlife, the current threats these animals face in the wild, and real-world conservation projects taking place to protect them. You can then keep the conversation going with an Earth Rangers Classroom Visit or Classroom Activities, both of which use hands-on learning and action to bring the information to life. Earth Rangers school outreach is designed for students in Grades 1-6.
