Trick Or Treat for Big Cats

Trick Or Treat for Big Cats

Would you like to help save big cats while you are having fun gathering your Halloween candy? The Trick-or-Treat for Big Cats initiative, from National Geographic, combines a fun activity kids love with the opportunity to learn more about and make a difference in the environment.

It’s a sad fact that lions, tigers and other felines are vanishing at an alarming rate. These majestic animals need our help if they are to thrive. Were you aware that there are more tigers in captivity than in the wild? Or that the Amur leopard is one of the most endangered animals in the world?

By taking part in the Trick-or-Treat for Big Cats program, kids can “Cause An Uproar” by collecting change with their candy to save these incredible animals. You can find more information about the initiative at where you can also get treat boxes, find big cat facts, cat-o-lantern instructions and more.

What a wonderful and inventive program! And it's a great teaching tool as well. We need to reach children at very young ages to appreciate animals and to treat them with respect and compassion.

I hope this really catches on. Thank you for this wonderful article about this awesome program.

It's a great idea, I am sure the children will be proud to support it, the last time I was involved
with Trick or Treat to any extenct was when I lived on the East Coast, NJ to be exact, I had been warned about the number of kids who came to the door but I was unprepared for just how many did turn up!...:) I loved it and my kids did too.
It isn't celebrated so much over here but is catching on.
