Try our School Biodiversity Adoption Challenge!
We are promoting a challenge to adopt a native species found near your school, or at a conservation centre, park, or zoo.
Imagine if schools around the world would adopt a species and maybe even an ecosystem found near their schools like the Macoun Marsh Project in Ottawa, Canada! There is so much we can learn from our local environments. We can also support local zoos and parks in their conservation efforts with endangered and threatened species. Join our biodiversity school alliance and share your efforts on our International Blog.

As politicians focus on voters for impending elections and corporate executives on the quarterly report, decisions are being made with consequences that reverberate well into the adult lives of today's youth. Yet young people don't vote and their future is seldom a part of political and corporate discussions. One consequence is declining quality of air, water, soil and biodiversity that we are leaving for coming generations. That's why youth are being informed and motivated about the important issues that will affect their lives.”
