Wanna lend a helping paw to some pups in need? You can help support important research by purchasing an Arctic fox adoption kit, through our Earth Rangers App or our estore.
Take advantage of our FREE SHIPPING this week only, in celebration of Earth Week!! Plushie adoption kits 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!
Your adoption will help support McGill University researcher Emily Choy as she examines the effects of climate change on a common Arctic fox prey species—thick-billed murres—on Coats Island in the Arctic. Arctic foxes are frequently seen cruising the shores of Coats Island looking for seabird nests, where they will feast on murre eggs during the summer when colonies nest in the thousands. Protecting the integrity of these colonies is crucial in ensuring that this food source remains stable for Arctic foxes.
