Covering roughly 10% of Earth’s surface, the tundra plays a vital role in our lives. As the coldest biome, the tundra helps regulate the temperature of the planet. Acting as a carbon sink, the tundra absorbs carbon dioxide from the environment and helps to counteract the harmful effects of carbon emissions.
The Tundra Is at Risk
However, the tundra is changing dramatically due to climate change, threatening to harm not only the rich biodiversity in the region, but also the entire planet. But it's not too late to change course.
Teaming Up To Protect Our Planet
The Nature Conservancy and Peek Kids are teaming up to help restore nature for our kids and grandkids. This year, Peek Kids is donating $10,000 to support TNC’s mission to protect and restore our planet. Each season, Peek is releasing a curated collection inspired by nature available at Peekkids.com and select retailers.
Inspired By Nature
The Winter 2021 collection, Tundra Biome, uses primarily organic cotton, brings awareness to endangered species, as well as inspires action to save the tundra in a fun, family-friendly way.
From babies to big kids, the collection includes various styles that incorporate the furry friends and luscious flora that inhabit the tundra, and reminds us that it’s never too soon to start caring for our planet.
Explore the free tundra-themed printables in honor of the Winter 2021 Tundra Biome collection below that encourage young people to get excited about nature. More nature-related activities can be found at nature.org/naturelab.
