Wonderful Winter Adaptations

Wonderful Winter Adaptations

We are spending this month meeting animals have some of the coolest winter adaptations around. People often wonder what animals do to survive extreme cold. Some animals hibernate and some just reduce their activities. Some animals are built to live in the cold all year round. There are some animals that even “freeze” themselves.

Get your best winter gear on and grab a cup of hot cocoa- with extra marshmallows- and get ready to learn about winter animals with us starting tomorrow! We’re meeting an amphibian first!

Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

Today has become known as Giving Tuesday. It is a day to give what you can to charity organizations that support all kinds of issues. We hear at Ellie & Edmond HQs are going to share two conservation organizations that we think are amazing! If you choose to give today, we encourage you to support these two groups.

 

First Up:

8D3C9816-ACEC-402D-87C8-7FE4FF47E9FE

The David Sheldreick Wildlife Foundation

This amazing organization takes in orphan elephants from the wild in Africa and raises them to return to the wild when they are old enough. Ocassionally they take care of orphan giraffes, antelope and rhinos. They have people who go out in to the wild and save adult elephants who have been injured by spears and other means. We can not say enough good things about the work they are doing. You can donate or adopt an orphan!

 

Second:

82DDF9BE-5AD0-4B64-B678-0AEA5ADF87A4

The Ocean Conservancy 

Our second conservation organization for the day is the Ocean Conservancy. This great group is working with scientists and conservationists all over the planet to protect the earth’s largest habitats and its inhabitants- the oceans. We all are connected to the oceans- even if we live no where near them and without healthy oceans we will not have a healthy planet.

 

8CE599E4-2D29-495B-A424-A2478951F42B

If you choose to donate to one of these great causes or a conservation group of your own- let us know and we will send you an Ellie and Edmond sticker and button. Thanks everyone!
