Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield protect rare owls for The Amazing Spider-Man 2's 'Be Amazing' campaign

The cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was out on Earth Day (Apr. 22), but they weren't ridding the world of villains.

Spider-Man Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, who reprises her role as Gwen Stacy, joined director Marc Webb, Jamie Foxx (Electro) and Dane Dehaan (Green Goblin) to protect rare, burrowing owls in Mountain View, California.

The trip to Shoreline Park was part of the film’s Be Amazing campaign, through which the film's stars explore communities that need help and lend a hand, whether it’s for local conservation missions or to assist at children’s hospitals.

Emma said, “there are so many opportunities in each city, so it’s been the best part of travelling with a movie like this.” The fiery Spice Girls super-fan joked with interviewers, noting that she had “irrigated the area and helped save owls with her bare hands.”

Emma's boyfriend, Andrew, proclaimed that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 “goes beyond making a movie…doing something to help the Earth. That’s the message of Spider-Man.”

Emma, 25, and Andrew, 30, have used their work in the film as a platform to raise awareness in the past - most recently, the duo became the first super hero ambassadors for Earth Hour, backing two separate projects on ‘Earth Hour Blue,’ a new Earth-friendly crowdsourcing and crowdfunding platform.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is slated to debut in theatres on May 2.
