Children are happier, healthier and more creative when they are connected to the natural world. This should be an option not just for a few, but for every child in the UK.
We want every child to have access to wild experiences.
We reach over 300,000 children every year through our work with schools, but there are 800,000 children in every school year. Helping today's children to develop a love of the natural world is vitally important for conservation.
The Wildlife Trusts can only carry out this work with the help of our supporters but mostly our work with schools, our junior nature clubs and family events are supported by our members.
That's why we need your help.
We need you to help us raise awareness - not just of the disconnect between children and nature, but of the solutions too!
We want to see Every Child Wild.
