A very wild two-fingered sloth! Beckett was the first two-fingered sloth to be tagged and monitored for the Sloth Backpack Project. She is a strong, feisty female who poses a serious challenge to biologists!
Girl participation in the Fall Take Action Program is an important Community Service piece of the Essential Girl Scout Experience and supports our 100+ year history of leading change and making positive differences in local communities and around the world. Taking part in the program gives girls the opportunity and equity to give back to their community while funding their dreams of making a difference.
Each fall, entrepreneurs take action to support conservation efforts for endangered species. During our Fall 2019 program, girls were inspired by Najin and Fatu, the only two Northern White Rhinos left in the world, and donated over $3,500 to support rhino conservation and their two favorite local rhinos, Boone and Gauhati, at the San Francisco Zoo and Gardens.
Our 2020 take action program conservation focus is the critically endangered Pygmy Three-toed Sloth. Evaluations vary, but the most recent count estimates that there are less than 100 in the world, due to habitat loss.
Through Girl Scout experiences like the Fall Take Action Program girls develop the attitudes, skills, and behaviors they need to succeed in life—giving them the courage to fail and keep trying, the tools to create an independent future, and the power to do good in the world.
We’re excited to bring our entrepreneurs together again to support conservation efforts by donating to Plant Sloth-friendly Trees, Adopting Sloths, and Building Safe Sloth Crossings.
Care to Share is GSNorCal’s service project in which we share our delicious products with the community! Girls sell virtual items to be donated by the council to local organizations, such as food banks, military bases, and other hometown heroes, at the end of the program.
Plus, girls who sell 5+ Care to Share items earn an exclusive patch AND Bravely Be You necklace!
