Every Child Wild

Every Child Wild - Making nature part of growing up - for all children

A generation of children is growing up disconnected from nature, with just one in ten ever playing in wild places. The Wildlife Trusts reach around half a million children each year, many with outdoor experiences through their school, but are concerned that many more children are not getting the chance to get close to wildlife. 

  • 91% of parents of children aged 18 and under think that having access to nature and wildlife is important for children, yet
  • 78% of parents are concerned that children don’t spend enough time interacting with nature and wildlife
      Results from YouGov poll commissioned by The Wildlife Trusts.
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust support getting children outdoors through our Outreach Education Workshops, Forest Schools Programme, Wildlife Watch and Wild Tots groups, Wild Play holiday activities and Family Events.
