Are you looking for a fun and engaging way to teach your child about protecting animals and caring for the Earth? Look no further than the Ranger Buddies! Brought to you by the wildlife parks at Mandai Wildlife Reserve, the programme aims to nurture every child into a hero who champions these important causes.

With exciting missions and activities that build confidence and essential character traits, Ranger Buddies will inspire your child to take positive action for themselves, others, and the Earth.

More About C.O.U.R.A.G.E.

Every child has the potential to be a hero for the Earth and every child who joins the programme will build up their C.O.U.R.A.G.E. traits to be able to do that in the future!

C.O.U.R.A.G.E. stands for Curiosity, Optimism, Undauntedness, Resourcefulness, Adaptability, Grittiness, and Empathy. These are huge words that encompasses character traits that many parents will agree relate to becoming future-ready adults - character traits that can only be taught outside the textbooks and classroom, traits that can be built and strengthened through experiences and hands-on learning. 

Exciting Missions Around The Island This March!

Join Ranger Buddies on a series of exciting missions around Singapore to discover how small actions can make a big difference to Earth. With activities designed to teach essential character traits, your child can immerse themselves in learning through play. Missions are available at i12 Katong, West Mall, One Punggol, and Singapore Zoo, or you can complete the 7-day challenge from the comfort of your own home.

At The Malls

At i12 Katong, West Mall, and One Punggol, Ranger Buddies will be transported to rainforest and river habitats to help their animal buddies in distress. With deforestation displacing our animal friends, Ranger Buddies will have to brave different obstacles using their C.O.U.R.A.G.E. strength to save the animals. For each strength demonstrated, Ranger Buddies will receive a stamp on a card, and a digital and physical badge awaits them once they complete the mission.
