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 www.causeanuproar.org where you can also get treat boxes, find big cat facts, cat-o-lantern instructions and more.
