Furry Vengeance is a live action family comedy in which an ambitious young real estate developer, Dan Sanders, faces off with a band of angry animals when his new housing subdivision pushes too far into a pristine part of the wilderness. Led by an incredibly clever raccoon, the animals stymie the development and teach our hero about the environmental consequences of man's encroachment on nature.
The Social Action Campaign for Furry Vengeance created by Participant Media focuses on the importance of endangered speciesand habitat preservation. A customized package including activities and materials has already been distributed to 15,000 schools around the US, which will reach 500,000 4th graders to engage and educate future environmentalists. The activities and curriculum available will offer tools and opportunities for young people to explore the natural areas of their communities and develop skills and a deeper knowledge of
habitat and animal protection issues. We are also working with Donors Choose to match funding on all classroom projects related to these themes on DonorsChoose.com.
We would love to get these materials out to as many families and teachers as possible. The teachers curriculum as well as the family activity booklet both provide a wealth of information as well as some great activities to get kids outside and exploring the natural habitats around them. It could be a great activity for your classrooms and families to do around Earth Day or Endangered Species Day in May.
