Sensitising children towards conserving wildlife and loving animals is an important part of parenting.
India has some of the most diverse species of wildlife in the world and is currently taking steps to protect and conserve the habitats of some of the most endangered species. To understand how varied and plentiful the wildlife in the country is, consider the fact that India is home to six percent of flowering species, 7.6 percent of all mammals, 12.6 percent of bird, and 6.2 percent of reptile species, according to Ranthambore National Park.
Though the government is taking initiatives to conserve nature, it’s also important to spread the message to the homes across the country, especially to our children. Some groups have recently taken the initiative to educate kids on the importance of wildlife conservation by conducting a summer camp to teach young ones about conservation through practical experience at a local zoo.
When it comes to educating kids, one of the most effective ways to teach conservation measures is not to preach, but to actively teach them about nature and the importance of wildlife conservation through fun activities. Here are some steps and activities to teach your kids about nature and wildlife conservation.
It’s always a good idea to incorporate some fun into every learning opportunity when teaching children about wildlife conservation. By doing some of the previously mentioned steps, not only do you get to spend quality time with your little ones, but they also develop a positive opinion about nature, and hopefully, they will be encouraged to take concrete steps to protect local wildlife in the coming years.
