What is a Backyard Action Hero?

A Backyard Action Hero — or BAH as they are called — is a kid or adult who is really into wildlife and habitats and is ready to take action to protect them. They think being “green” is cool, and they know that to make a difference they not only need to learn, but they also need to act! BAHs care about animals and habitats in their own backyards as well as all around the world.
