A Speech For You

Hi everyone. You all know about my work for Earth Rangers, but just in case you don’t, I’ll give you the scoop. I am an Earth Ranger, currently fundraising for the Beluga Whale. This is my third campaign for Earth Rangers. This year, I wrote a speech about why you should join Earth Rangers, and I thought I’d just share it with you all. So here it is:


There are approximately 400 animals at risk of extinction in Canada alone. Can you believe that? Although the situation is very grave, there is a way that we can help. There is an organization that empowers children and gives them amazing experiences. The very same organization gives children a chance to make a difference and states where and how their hard work makes an impact. The foundation also gives children the satisfaction of achieving their own goals and enables them to actively participate in this institution, their own way. Welcome to the world of Earth Rangers.


Earth Rangers will give you unforgettable experiences and memories of fundraising to help save an endangered animal. Children are now able to make a difference and donate to the animal of their choice, thanks to Earth Rangers. Approximately 60 000 children become members of this extraordinary organization each year, and they will most likely carry the memories that Earth Rangers has given to them throughout their whole lives. Something most people do not realize is that by fundraising, you are also spreading awareness for your cause, which I find to be also very empowering as an Earth Ranger myself. In Fact, Earth Ranger Jovanna, a 10-year-old from Canada inspired many people. In her super Ranger article, Jovanna stated “Lots of people were inspired, most people donated, and four people even created accounts for their own children,” regarding asking for donations for last year’s American badger. Jovanna made a very sizeable difference, and you can too.


You can make a large impact by joining this organization, and spare the lives of many animals too. A simple donation, big or small, can go along way when it comes to helping animals. Earth Rangers specifically states where all your hard-earned donations are being sent, which varies accordingly to which animal you are protecting. The Earth Rangers website (, clearly expresses that 50% of all funds are put toward conservation projects and the restoration of habitats for your chosen animal. The remaining percentage is given to its educational programs and performances in an assortment of places including our school, last year. Earth Rangers is very specific in setting out precisely how that 50% for the animals is utilized. For example, for the beluga whale, half of all funds going directly to the animals are used to purchase underwater recorders to learn more about noise pollution and how it affects these white whales communication, and other research too. We can all try to make an impact on our world, and sometimes we get something back too.


Joining Earth Rangers is very rewarding, both mentally and physically, and there are many perks of reaching your goals. Earth Rangers enables children to choose their own monetary goals, instead of having a default goal that they may never reach, or, in some cases, surpass easily. By being able to choose their own goal, children have the freedom to judge their own abilities and motivation to choose an appropriate goal for themselves. By reaching your own personalized goal, you will most likely meet a sensation, a wonderful feeling, that you followed through with your own ideas and stayed committed to realize your goal. For extra motivation, not that true Earth Rangers need it, Earth Rangers also offers an array of rewards that increase in number as you collect more and more funds. Some rewards include medals, pins, a variety of buttons, and a personalized trophy with your name on it at $1000.

Now, don’t be fooled, the medals may seem pretty cool, but at the end of the day, it all comes back to the satisfaction of knowing that you made a difference and helped an endangered animal. Being an Earth Ranger means really believing in your cause and demonstrating your actions like-wise, and Earth Rangers makes it simple.


Earth Rangers is very easy to join with a highly navigable website and kid-friendly, and understandable instructions. To sign up, you can simply go to to “accept your mission” and choose the animal you wish to protect. To aid you in your choice, Earth Rangers provides a profile of all the animals they are helping at the time, alongside a video and description of whichever animal you click or hover over. After you confirm your animal and goal, Earth Rangers will also enable you to create a unique, personalized, avatar and set up your account. Once you have signd up, you can login anytime and enjoy variety of articles, games, and videos featured on the Earth Rangers website. However, if you want further information specifically on this foundation’s mission staff, location and program, you may wan to visit the more informational Earth Rangers website, Just remember though, it’s not all about the games and videos. The most important part of being an Earth Ranger is actually helping the animal and knowing that you tried your hardest to fulfill your goal.


In conclusion, the wonderful world of Earth Rangers has a lot to offer to all Canadian children passionate about animals and protecting their homes and natural environment. Earth Rangers provides children with irreplaceable memories and experiences and inspires them and the people around them. This organization gives children the knowledge of where their hard-earned profits are being put to use, specifically zooming in on their cause to better inform them. Earth Rangers rewards children with badges and pins, but also the satisfaction of all their hard work. This foundation has a customizable profile and is truly a place for children of all ages, wanting to really change the world. There are approximately 400 species at risk of extinction in Canada. So, take the initiative and become an Earth Ranger today.


Well, That’s all for today. Until the next post,

Burrowing Badgers

One year ago, I had no idea what an American badger was, let alone that it was endangered. One year later, I’ve raised $1000 for Earth Rangers helping them. American badgers are small animals about the size of a small dog and are mostly white and grey, except for one black stripe that runs from the top of their nose to the tip of their tail. American badgers live in burrows that they dig in fields, their natural habitat.

American badgers are endangered for three reasons. One is habitat loss. Developers are destroying their fields and building houses on them. The second reason is roads. With all the roads that are being constructed, American badgers are forced to cross them to get to the other side and they can easily get run over by a passing car. The third reason is isolation. American badgers are being isolated from each other so they can’t mate and reproduce.

Last October, I signed up for Earth Rangers again. This year I decided to raise money for none other then our striped, furry friends. I told my family and friends not to give me gifts for my birthday or Christmas and to instead donate to my campaign. Later in the year, I made refrigerator magnets and sold them to my classmates at school. Then, I decided to have yard sale in my backyard and invited everyone I could. Finally last week, I sold my iPod and reached my original goal of $1000.

Despite their name, American badgers can be found across Canada as stated in their full name, American badgers of the Southern Norfolk Sand Plain, Ontario. You can learn more about American badgers and sign up for your own campaign at Earth Rangers.

That’s all for now, but be on the lookout for more posts!
