This is an excellent site that teaches kids about the environment through articles, games, and missions! To learn more, check out their About page.
When you arrive at the site, you’ll find lots of featured content on the main page like a mission (when I was there it was protecting beluga whales and doing a taste test of tap versus bottled water), amazing animals, the wild blog, and animal videos.
Along the top of the page you’ll find the navigation menu where you’ll find the categories: Protect Animals, Missions, Discover Animals, Grown Ups, Become An Earth Ranger, and Freebies.
Protect Animals – the first step is for your child to pick an animal (the options when I was there were the barn swallow, western bumblebee, beluga whale, and Blanding’s turtle). Then they can watch a video before choosing an animal to protect. Then they can set a fund raising goal each has its own reward levels. After that they’ll create an avatar, which they’ll save, and then create an account. Then they can start working towards their fundraising goal and earn rewards for completing it.
Missions – here they’ll find several environmental missions that they can take on, these challenges vary from protecting animals as described above to challenging their friends and family to a water taste test to completing five green challenges!
Discover Animals – this is an awesome section that lets kids discover animals through blog posts, fact lists, videos, and more.
This is a great site for kids who are interested in the environment, or to get your kids more interested in the environment. Check it out today!
