The partnership between Earth Rangers and Dawn is designed to inspire kids to be “wildlife heroes” though digital eco-advocacy. The partnership will support Dawn’s partner charities, International Bird Rescue and the Marine Mammal Center.
Through the Earth Rangers app, kids can compete in community challenges for virtual badges, points, and more. This month, Earth Rangers and Dawn are launching Shoreline Saver, a mission that encourages kids to care about wildlife and the environment by organizing their own shoreline cleanup at local beaches, lakes, and ponds. As they complete their mission, kids will also learn important lessons, including giving wildlife space, making sure any human snacks are picked up so they don’t make wild animals sick, pointing out signs that wildlife is sick or injured, and what to do if they encounter wildlife.
If kids complete their mission by the end of June, they can get a free adoption that supports the International Bird Rescue or the Marine Mammal Center. Kids can choose from a common loon or a harbor seal. Each pet adoption includes a snuggly plush toy and an adoption certificate.
