Why is environmental learning so important?
It is clear that our planet is rapidly changing, so protecting the environment and conserving natural resources for future generations and wildlife is of paramount importance.
Climate change, global warming and the environmental effects not only impacts people’s livelihoods and communities; it is detrimental to animal populations through habitat loss and the restriction of food sources.
The effects of global warming have become so bad that scientists believe that we have entered the Earth’s sixth period of mass extinction with 1 million species under threat.
