Planeteer Alerts[]

First Planeteer Alert

Gaia: Many exotic birds and animals are not born in captivity. They are stolen from their natural habitats.
Linka: Poachers kill many animals to get just one into a store.
Gi: But wild animals are not pets.
Kwame: If people refuse to buy wild birds and animals, poachers will stop hunting them.
Ma-Ti: It is up to all of us to protect our animal friends.
Wheeler: And preserve their homes in the wild.
All: The power is yours!

Second Planeteer Alert

Linka: There are lots of little things each of us can do to solve our Earth's problem.
Wheeler: Avoid one-time-use items.
Gi: Like paper cups.
Linka: And single-serving products.
Ma-Ti: Instead, use a glass and buy in bulk whenever possible.
Captain Planet: Save energy by wearing a sweater in winter instead of cranking up the heat.
Ma-Ti: Urge your parents to carpool or ride public transit.
Kwame: When we use less energy, we reduce pollution at the same time.
Captain Planet: Remember...
All: The power is yours!
