Wildlife exposure at an early age is crucial

A large body scientific literature has indicated the physical and mental health benefits of being exposed to nature. Apart from that, exposure to nature and wildlife from a young age can also help in building appreciation for other life forms and thus inculcating a value of kinship and conservation. It is in this context, that we believe that schools can become key change agent centers to sensitize children.

Often enough, children in schools situated in rural areas (more close to wilderness) are not necessarily witness to wildlife around them owing to a variety of reasons like- lack of observation, prevented from going into forest areas, not taught in the outdoors etc. So they too, like urban children lack in their exposure to nature.
