Special Badge Program for Scouts

scout patch
Join us for Guardian of the Rainforest, designed by the Philadelphia Zoo and Girl Scouts, Madison Vorva and Rhiannon Tomtishen. Rainforests are home to many endangered animals including the orangutan. In this badge program, you can learn how you can save these animals from extinction as well as more about rainforests and the animals that live there. If you are looking to complete your Junior Girl Scout Animal Habitats Badge, this program fits perfectly! Scouts will also receive a Special Zoo patch.

Guardian of the Rainforest can be completed anywhere! Download the information and activity packets (PDFs) and follow the directions. You can also come to the Philadelphia Zoo and do this program as a daytime workshop or themed overnight.
