No…it’s not Rudolph, it’s Canada’s Woodland Caribou.
Woodland Caribou are herd animals that live in the boreal forests of Canada. They migrate in massive herds, moving across thousands of kilometres every year. But, due to forest harvesting, the caribou’s habitat is shrinking. Some experts say that by 2100 the animals will be extinct in Ontario and possibly other parts of Canada, too.
Earth Rangers is the kids’ conservation organization focused on helping spread messages about the importance of protecting biodiversity. This December they are launching their second annual Bring Back the Wild ‘Save the Real Reindeer’ campaign. The main goals of this exciting project are to educate Canadian families about the plight facing woodland caribou and the role of the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement in woodland caribou conservation.
For a limited time, children are invited to choose the woodland caribou as the animal they want to help protect by going to www.earthrangers.com.
