Pennies for the Planet 2005--Protecting Big Cats!
World Wildlife Fund is proud to announce the launch of Pennies for the Planet 2005! Pennies is an educational and fundraising campaign that engages thousands of kids in conservation education and action every year. This year's program is focused on big cats. On the newly-designed Pennies Web site, kids can learn about big cats and the threats they face. They can download big cat masks, learn about conservationists working in the field to protect endangered cats, read about what other kids have done to get involved in Pennies, take a tiger quiz, AND find out what they can do to help protect big cats in their daily lives. They'll also find fun ideas for raising pennies to help the campaign's three target big cats: the highly endangered Amur leopard, snow leopard, and Sumatran tiger. Educators visiting the Web site will find educational activities to help teach their students about big cats, as well as information about collecting and sending in pennies. Any money raised can be donated by taking change to a Coinstar machine in your local supermarket, sending a check or money order to WWF, or donating online on the Pennies Web site. Sign up for the monthly Pennies e-newsletter for updates on new educational activities, ideas for fundraising, and fun facts about big cats, by sending an email to [email="firstname.lastname@example.org"]email@example.com[/email].
