WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
Bring conservation and science to life by giving children the opportunity to hear from WWF experts. Through free 45-minute virtual events livestreamed on our website, children can listen as WWF experts share stories of their experience working to protect species and habitats around the world. As you watch live, you can submit questions for the expert, participate in polls and quizzes, and interact with the expert by showing how much you learned! These experiences are open to parents with children, teachers with students, and anyone interested in bringing conservation experts into your classroom or living room.
Forests are vital to the health of our planet and play a critical role in fighting climate change. They help regulate the Earth’s temperature and nature cycles by storing greenhouse gases that would otherwise collect in our atmosphere. However, when forests are not properly cared for and are degraded and deforested, they can contribute to climate change rather than reduce the impacts. Join us for a live stream event with Josefina Braña Varela to learn about the connections between forests and climate change and what she and her team are working on to protect forests.
Prepare for the session by downloading the free supplemental material pack for pre– and post–activities including bell-ringers, worksheets, Kahoot games and Wild Classroom activities.

Healthy rivers are extremely important to the survival of people and nature around the world. They provide habitat and food for plants and animals, and provide protection and livelihood for humans living near and far. But when human infrastructures like dams, roads, and buildings prevent rivers from flowing freely, it prevents them from being able to support all of the organisms that depend on them. During this talk, Natalie Shahbol, Freshwater Specialist at WWF, will explain the importance of using freshwater resources responsibly so that it doesn’t cause devasting impacts to the environment. She’ll break down all of the benefits we get from rivers and how students can do their part to take care of the rivers in their communities.
