At Earth Rangers, we always talk about how important it is to spread the word about protecting animals and their homes. The more people know about the challenges faced by animals, the more they can do to help make a difference. Super Ranger Elijah agrees. In fact, the goal for the website he runs is to inspire people to take action. Here is his story!
My name is Elijah and I am nine years old. I like many things, especially swimming, but more than anything, I like nature. I’ve liked it since I was seven and I even went vegetarian for a while. I try super hard to be nature friendly. I thought maybe I could convince other people to be nature friendly too.
I created a website called Nature’s Pandemonium. It’s a place for kids to find campaigns and petitions, hilarious cartoons and eco tips from the experts. It’s been providing guidance for kids to help the environment or community for almost two years! I couldn’t have built the website without my dad, who showed me how the software works.
I decided to include a link to Earth Rangers on my website because I find they share their ecological knowledge in fun ways for kids. For example, their games are very fun yet still teaching kids about the environment. That will make kids want to learn more about the environment and maybe they will try and make their own website.
I believe everybody should respect animals. Just because they’re smaller than you doesn’t mean you can take advantage of them! That’s actually part of the reason I became a vegetarian.
My motto is, “Karma will pay you back for helping animals.”
We love hearing stories like Elijah’s. We think it’s important for people everywhere to take a page from Elijah’s book – get out there, take action and make a difference!
