We are uniquely reliant on forests
Did you know that the air that we breathe, the water we drink and the energy we consume all originates from the processes controlled by trees and other plants? Without them, life as we know it would not exist. This week, we've provided five easy ways for you to connect with nature and learn more about forests from home; including engaging information sheets, activities and a live webinar with a WWF expert. If you’re a teacher, download our Educator Guide for further curriculum linked activities for Key 2 and 3. You might also wish to download our new activity pack 'Celebrating Forests'.
