"Plant a new truffula. Treat it with care. Give it clean water, and feed it fresh air. ..."

Although it was first published in 1971, The Lorax by Dr. Seuss continues to be the foremost example of anti-industrialization and nature conservation in children's literature. The Lorax was earth friendly before a lot folks really knew how important it was to be aware of protecting the natural resources of our world.
In 2008, The Lorax Project was launched by Random House Publishers, Dr. Seuss Enterprises and Conservation International to encourage people of all ages to do their part in conserving the planet's forests and protecting the world's endangered species. The site is filled with information, activities, games, and brings general awareness to not only children, but any visitor to the Project's page.
Earth Day is April 22nd, a couple of months away, but if you have children that would like to participate in a conservation project or if you are wondering how you can be more proactive this year, The Lorax Project is a great place to start getting informed!
