In celebration of Earth Month, we welcomed Earth Rangers and their Animal Ambassadors for a special ‘Bring Back the Wild’ presentation on April 2, in collaboration with the Nature Conservancy of Canada. The Eco-Assembly focused on issues related to biodiversity, and the importance of protecting animals and their habitats. In the presentation, four species and their habitats at-risk were introduced: the Spotted Turtle in Ontario, the Plains Bison in Saskatchewan, the Pine Marten in Newfoundland, and the Monarch Butterfly in Manitoba.
The Eco-Assembly officially kicked-off our ‘Take Action’ button fundraising campaign, where students and staff will have the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for selected animals, while collecting button rewards for their efforts. Fifty percent of the funds raised will support the Nature Conservancy of Canada to protect the animal habitats. The remaining fifty percent will support Earth Rangers’ education program, so they may continue their work to teach youth about the crisis facing biodiversity.
