Protecting Species-At-Risk Habitat and Encouraging Youth Action in Schools Across Canada

March 01, 2024

Teck supports organizations across Canada that increase awareness and promote learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). One of these organizations is Earth Rangers, the conservation group for kids committed to instilling environmental knowledge, positivity and the confidence to act. 

Our collaboration with Earth Rangers supports expanded opportunities to engage youth and protect Canadian wildlife. Teck sponsors the Earth Rangers School Assembly Program across communities near our operations, which brings interactive learning to youth through beloved Animal Ambassadors such as Sonic the Barn Owl and Mille the Three-Banded Armadillo. To date, the Teck and Earth Rangers partnership has delivered more than 150 Earth Rangers School Assemblies, reaching more than 50,000 students. 

Our partnership also includes a wildlife adoptions program to raise funds for conservation work supporting animals in the regions where we operate. Our latest wildlife adoption project supports the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s efforts to restore and protect open grassland areas of the Kootenay River Ranch Conservation Area in B.C., with youth across Canada symbolically adopting bighorn sheep, American badgers and grizzly bears.
