Simple Ways Kids Can Help Protect Rainforests

Hello, Tiger Cubs! Have you seen the latest Tiger and Tim learning video for kids? (If you haven’t, you can watch it here) It’s all about the rainforest! We had so much fun in that crazy rainforest adventure. On top of that, we also learnt a lot of essential facts and information about the rainforest! 

Our newest episode is just like our other videos. Kids learn while having fun – that’s TIGER-RIFFIC, don’t you think?!  Shows like Tiger and Tim give kids a chance to learn about the world, and you cool cats know that I love learning new things!

Going back to our latest episode – as we know, the rainforests all over the world need our help. Saving the rainforests are not just the job of grown-ups, everyone (kids and tigers included!) can take part in protecting planet Earth, including the rainforests!

So here are simple ways kids (and adults) can help protect and save the environment, particularly our rainforests.

  1. Buy sustainably sourced foods

Sustainably sourced foods are food products that have been produced through responsible practices, from planting down to the selling of these goods. This simply means that the environment was not harmed or negatively affected in making the food. For this reason, buying sustainable food products like bananas and coffee is one step in helping save our rainforests.

 

  1. Use less paper

Tim once told me that paper is made from trees. Because of this, whenever we use less paper in whatever way possible is already a huge deal for the rainforests around the globe. Using less paper and recycling the ones that we use can save a ton of trees in the rainforest, which means the ecosystem of our forests will continue to be preserved.

Here’s a short explainer video so kids can have a better understanding of how paper is made.

  1. Donate to organisations that protect rainforests

In our learning video for kids, Tim and I always say that we have to help others as much as possible. Donating to different environmental causes and organisations, such as the Rainforest Trust, Survival International, and Amazon Conservation Association, among others, regardless of the amount, can help a lot in supporting the work of these organisations. You can encourage your Tiger Cubs to allot a portion of their allowance and save up a certain amount they are willing to donate to protect and save the rainforests. I am saving up a part of my ice cream money so I can also help the rainforests!

 

  1. Adopt an animal

Protecting the animals that are living in rainforests is also an essential aspect of saving the environment. Tim adopted me from the jungle, and your kids can also adopt their very own wild animal – virtually adopt, that is! Different wildlife protection groups allow virtual adoption of various endangered animals; wherein everyone is encouraged to donate to the cause of protecting these animals. Adults and kids alike can watch videos of their adopted animals to get to know more about them.

 

I got lucky because Tim and I found each other. Now your kids can have their very own (virtual) Tiger, too!

 

  1. Learn more about rainforests

Last, and not least, is to keep learning more about how amazing rainforests are and how they can affect our daily lives. Our Rainforest Rangers learning video for kids is a great start. But there are many more other resources and shows that kids can watch to further their knowledge and understanding of how rainforests work and how we can work to save and protect them.

 

There you have it, cool cats! The world’s rainforests need our help, and every little step towards saving and protecting them will have a significant impact in the years to come.
