Activities for families

By helping families to experience the wonders of nature together, we can inspire them to become informed and caring ambassadors who are well equipped to take action for our amazing planet.

There are plenty of ways for young people and families to take action with WWF; from participating in simple craft activities at home to using our inspiring and enriching educational content at home. If you'd prefer to explore the natural world all around you, then you'll just love the new new nature ID app - Seek - which is designed for young explorers and anyone curious about our world.
