When kids learn about endangered species, there is an empathetic spark to want to DO something to help. Project Hero™ challenges and guides students on a Hero’s Quest to understand threats facing locally endangered species, and to design and implement a solution to make a meaningful difference.
The free web-based platform designed for use in the classroom is the collaborative effort of several national and regional conservation organizations with a vision of activating and mobilizing young people to support species and ecosystems across North America.
