Super Ranger Nadia, A Friend to All Species

Look down. See that T-shirt you’re wearing? When you bought it, did it help animals in need? Well, if you buy SpeeZees tees it will!

Meet Nadia, the girl who came up with the idea behind SpeeZees. This 7-year-old is passionate about animals of all kinds, especially insects. Science is Nadia’s favourite way to pass the time. She loves doing science experiments and making potions out of what she finds in nature. She enjoys playing in the forest and exploring nearby beaches with her sister and friends.

Nadia was sitting down one morning eating Gorilla Munch, a cereal that donates a percentage of its sales to conservation work related to saving the mountain gorillas of the Virunga Mountains. After reading the box with her mother and talking about why these gorillas needed help, Nadia wondered whether they could do something similar. Nadia’s parents, who make organic cotton onesies and kids T-shirts, thought it was a brilliant idea and decided to launch a T-shirt line called SpeeZees (like “species”).

T-shirts

Nadia, along with her younger sister, Elena, and her parents, chose 10 species from around the world – northern spotted owl, Asian elephant, polar bear, Lehmann’s poison frog, Cape mountain zebra, Western bumble bee, mountain gorilla, greater bamboo lemur, Indochinese tiger and Amsterdam albatross – and spent almost a year researching the best organizations working to support these species. Through SpeeZees, Nadia and her family want to celebrate not only conservation work around the world, but also kids like you who are passionate about protecting animals.

Wise Words from Nadia

When we asked Nadia for some words of advice, she came back with three awesome quotes:

“Be kind to all creatures big and small. Even tarantulas and black widow spiders are really gentle and delicate spiders.”

“Every animal has a reason for being here, even wasps!”

“We can all make a difference by working together.”

For every T-shirt you buy, $1 goes to the conservation organization working to support that T-shirt’s species.
