Panda Miti for Tomorrow

Nope, that's not some new panda born in China and destined for a life of ease at the Wolong Panda Reserve in Chengdu. Instead that's Kiswahili for "Plant Trees", and since Roots & Shoots latest campaign is to plant trees in Tanzania where that's the national language, they're asking people around the world if they're ready to "Panda Miti". Titled "Rebirth the Earth: Trees for Tomorrow" they're getting youth involved in the fights against pollution and global warming while helping to increase habitat for animals all at the same time. And it's not just that they're working to plant trees in Tanzania either, they're also focusing on planting native species in their own countries at the same time; particularly here in the U.S. Their goal is to raise $10,000 to create 5 tree nurseries in Tanzania that can serve as hubs for sustainable forestry, and see to it that at least 3,000 individual trees are planted in the U.S. alone How to get involved? That's simple, head over to their website and check it out, it could be a great way for your group of students, scouts, etc., to get involved in protecting tomorrow for all of us Pandas included.
