For the past five years, a Girl Scout troop in the US state of New Jersey has mobilized its community in the city of Medford to participate in Earth Hour. This year, Ambassador Troop 24349 is using its power to make a difference for wildlife projects in Nepal.
For Earth Hour 2013, they held an event educating younger scouts about global warming, and the year before that a hunger banquet - to create awareness about the impact of climate change on global food supplies.
The scouts are harnessing their love for the environment and applying entrepreneurial skills to raise money for an Earth Hour crowdfunding project by WWF Nepal. 'Puppy Protectors' aims to adopt and train sniffer dogs to protect endangered tigers, elephants and rhinos from poachers.
That's why, the Medford Girl Scouts are Earth Hour Everyday Superheroes.
