Earth Rangers is a kids' conservation organization dedicated to educating children and their families about biodiversity, inspiring them to adopt sustainable behaviours and empowering them to become directly involved in protecting animals and their habitats. More than 150,000 children from across Canada have signed up to be Earth Rangers!
Children have an inherent love for animals and are passionate about making a real difference on issues concerning wildlife. Earth Rangers builds on this desire by providing programs that empower children to make a real difference for Canadian biodiversity and the habitats they need to survive.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) was the original conservation partner for Earth Rangers’ Bring Back the WildTM (BBtW) Program and continues to be an active partner. Since 2010, NCC and Earth Rangers have collaborated on more than a dozen projects, contributing to the protection of countless animals, including the Jefferson salamander, American badger, barn swallow and peregrine falcon.

BBtW educates children about the importance of protecting animals and empowers them to take action by starting a fundraising campaign. Each year, Earth Rangers works with conservation partners to identify unique Canadian species that are facing threats in the wild and develops tangible projects to protect these animals and their habitats. To date, tens of thousands of Earth Rangers’ members and their families have raised over $2 million for BBtW conservation projects.
