Our grasslands are shrinking.

Our planet’s grasslands are the rich home to our big land-based animals, but they’re also shrinking. They once covered a quarter of our planet, but as the human population exploded, we've turned our grasslands into farmland and replaced wild herds with domestic ones. 

Below you'll find a series of engaging resources and activities to help you connect with nature and learn more about our planet's grassland habitats; from creative 'make-it' events, to educational worksheets and a webinar with a WWF expert.
