When we save wildlife, we save ourselves

Wildlife, nature, and the outdoors are essential to any child’s upbringing. Most of us can remember a time in our childhood we spent exploring nature – but now, much of our children’s time spent outdoors has been replaced with time spent in front of a screen. We can change that – by replacing just one hour a week of screen time with “green time,” we can conserve wildlife and improve our children’s lives.
