The Wildlife Trusts: Nature’s Climate Heroes
The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of people from a wide range of backgrounds and all walks of life, on a mission to restore a third of the UK’s land and seas for nature by 2030. They believe everyone, everywhere, should have access to nature and the joy and health benefits it brings.
A new educational pack, ‘Nature’s Climate Heroes’, has been launched to help primary school children understand the connections between the natural world, a changing climate, and people. Aimed at 7-11 year olds, the Wildlife Trusts’ ‘Nature’s Climate Heroes’ resources are designed to help children:
- Understand the connections between nature, climate change and people.
- Investigate how nature helps our fight against climate change.
- Discover what small and local actions can be taken to give nature a boost in this bigger fight.
