Teck and Earth Rangers Partner to Support Wildlife Conservation

Teck Resources Limited (TSX: TECK.A and TECK.B, NYSE: TECK) ("Teck") and Earth Rangers today announced an expanded partnership to support wildlife conservation programs and engage young Canadians in biodiversity programming, including a new youth volunteer initiative.

The collaboration between Teck and Earth Rangers builds on the existing partnership with increased funding from Teck of $500,000 to support expanded opportunities to engage youth and protect Canadian wildlife, including the following Earth Rangers initiatives:

  • Wildlife Adoption Programs to raise funds for conservation work supporting animals in the regions where Teck operates
  • A new Earth Rangers Youth Volunteer Program to encourage and provide access to conservation-focused volunteer opportunities for youth aged 13 – 18
  • Earth Rangers School Assembly Program , which will visit 25 schools in communities near Teck's Canadian operations annually

To date, the Teck and Earth Rangers partnership has supported more than 150 Earth Rangers school assemblies, reaching approximately 50,000 students. Conservation programs supported include the Nature Conservancy of Canada's efforts to restore and protect open grassland areas of the Kootenay River Ranch Conservation Area in B.C. which is an important habitat for bighorn sheep, American badgers, and other wildlife.

This partnership supports Teck's goal to become a nature positive company by 2030. Becoming nature positive means that, by 2030, Teck's conservation, protection and restoration of land and biodiversity will exceed the disturbance caused by its mining activities from a 2020 baseline. In doing so, Teck will conserve or rehabilitate at least three hectares for every one hectare affected by its mining activities.

Our partnership with Teck has always focused on empowering them to do that by learning about and supporting important conservation work in Teck communities and across Canada. With the increased support announced today, we'll be extending our programming beyond elementary school and into the teen years, by providing impactful environmental volunteer opportunities for middle and high school students."
