Conservation in the Classroom

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.
