About Earth Rangers Foundation:
The Earth Rangers Foundation’s (Earth Rangers) mission is “to educate and empower children to Bring Back the Wild.” It aims to mobilize children towards protecting animals and improving the environment, ultimately protecting biodiversity. Earth Rangers reports that 50% of its spending is directed towards the research, protection and stewardship of animal habitats in Canada. The other 50% of its spending supports free education programs in schools across Canada.
Earth Rangers' School Outreach program delivers school assemblies for children in grades 1 to 6. The program educates students on the importance of protecting biodiversity, and highlights the conservation initiatives in Canada. In F2015, Earth Rangers visited over 800 English and French elementary schools, reaching over 236,000 students. The School Outreach program also makes classroom visits that provide hands-on learning to students in grades 3 to 5.
The Earth Rangers Foundation’s Membership program requires that children sign up to become an Earth Ranger. The charity then provides its members with activities, communications and conservation projects. Earth Rangers’ Missions program provides short-term assignments for its members, which are designed to keep children and their families engaged throughout the year. Earth Rangers reports that it currently engages with 100,000 children across Canada.
Each year, Earth Rangers’ Bring Back the Wild program works with conservation partners to identify four Canadian species facing threats in the wild. Its members learn about the conservation efforts, and are asked to start a fundraising campaign for the animals. In F2015, Earth Rangers focused on the Wolverine, Peregrine Falcon, Little Brown Bat and Cold-Water Coral.
