Go Green

Earth Day is April 22 each year, but environmental work is a year-round challenge. DragonflyTV knows kids like you are doing their part to help! Here are some of the best ecology resources on our site. Take a look and get inspired to go green!

Check out these Eco-Friendly Investigations:

  • In Birmingham, Alabama, Joshua and Sean ask: What kind of waste is our school producing, and how can we reduce it?
  • Alaska-based DFTVers Deborah and Brittani take global warming to task, investigating: How fast are the glaciers melting?
  • Meanwhile, DFTV tree huggers Emma and Gracie ask: How long would it take for a new tree to grow as big as an old growth tree?
  • In North Carolina, Valencia, Sarah, and Sophia check out local wetlands to discover: What plants and animals live in wetlands?
  • Florida investigators Kristen and Christopher learn more about endangered Manatees on the Crystal River, answering the question: Are these the same manatees we saw last year?
  • Also in Florida, Elissa and Julia check out: Is the weevil slowing the spread of melaleuca trees, an invasive species, in the Everglades?
  • Carlos and Akeem help with turtle research in Juno Beach, Florida where they track threatened loggerhead, wondering: How many loggerhead babies make it from their nest to the water?
  • Isaac and Anjali get the low-down on alternative fuels, asking: How does the sun's position in the sky affect a solar car's performance?
  • Kevin goes to great lengths with his worm farm, asking: How can worms help us with our garbage?

DFTV's Got Green Game! Check out Weebit World, which lets you practice balancing an ecosystem—in this case weebits and plants.
