Join the quest to preserve African wildlife
TOGETHER for Good Wildlife Special, an educational mini-series created to inspire kids about endangered wildlife, wants you to become a change- maker. In commemoration, Nickelodeon has launched a Tanzania environment within its hit educational geography app, Dora’s Worldwide Adventure.
“Our research shows that 73% of kids aged 6-11 think their age group has the potential to change the world for the better,and we want to give them the tools to do just that,” said Bradley Archer-Haynes, Nickelodeon International’s vice president for corporate social responsibility.
“The Together for Good Wildlife Special combined with the Tanzania launch on our Dora app allows our relationship with the African Wildlife Foundation to reach and empower all kids, from preschool to tweens on all the platforms they love.
“Uganda served as the perfect backdrop to develop entertaining content that teaches kids about the important implications of African wildlife conservation and to inspire them to use their voices to get involved.”
In the Together For Good Wildlife Special, Nickelodeon star Breanna Yde ( School of Rock) will guide young viewers on a journey through Uganda as she discovers key conservation and environmental challenges and hears from heroes who work daily to protect at-risk wildlife.
The mini-series and supplementing digital features will tell the stories of real life heroes: guides, park rangers, detection dogs and their handlers and show kids everywhere how they can help from home with additional resources at http:// wildlife. nickelodeon.tv.
Kids can participate in the #AWFRoarChallenge on social media, which encourages kids to take videos of themselves roaring in a funny effort to scare a friend. As the official campaign hashtag, #AWFRoarChallenge will also collate fun animal facts, ways to fundraise.
