To kick off this year's bracket in style, TakePart invited Randall, the voice of the honey badger video, to introduce the competitors. Check out his pawsome video - and start voting! (TakePart)
It’s election season - for endangered animals.
Sixteen candidates are competing in “Rare & Ready to Be Saved,” TakePart’s annual bracket game aimed at having a bit of spirited fun while calling attention to the plight of some of the planet’s most imperiled animals.
Through April 5, you can vote every day, once a day, in the contest, which features the work of the Endangered Species Coalition.
Yes, it’s sport. And yes, after four rounds of balloting, an iconic king of the jungle - or sultan of the sea or sovereign of the sky - will emerge victorious. But the truth is that every animal in the game is a winner. TakePart, in its sole discretion, will donate $1 to the Endangered Species Coalition, up to $5,000, for every 10 votes received. The nonprofit will, in turn, use the funds to safeguard endangered species and their habitats.
