Eco-Activity: Sea lion origami


Today’s Eco Activity: Sea Lion Origami

Origami is the Japanese art of paper-folding. Have you ever wanted to try your hand at folding your way to some awesome artwork? How about creating a Patagonian sea lion? Well, today you can do BOTH!

Plus, if you use scrap paper from around the house, you can upcycle something that would otherwise end up in the recycling bin! Do your best not to use any “new” paper products for this project. Canada is lucky enough to have some of the world’s healthiest and most beautiful forests. Let’s help keep it that way by reducing and reusing paper products!

Take a look around your house to see if there is anything you can use: old grocery lists, used notepad pages, flyers… your least-impressive school report card… really any sturdy paper product should word! Bonus points if that paper has already been recycled once!

Wanna lend a helping fin to some sea lions in need? You can help support important research to protect this unique species by purchasing a sea lion Wildlife Adoption kit!

Plushie adoption kits are only $40 and include a certificate and a poster, and when you make your purchase through the Earth Rangers App your child will also earn points to help them level up on their Earth Rangers journey—plus a set of virtual rewards they can show off!
