London – Today, the PETA Foundation – a charity committed to helping end animal suffering and providing children with the tools to make compassionate choices – offered to help teachers and parents inspire children about wildlife.  The outreach comes in the wake of a BBC Wildlife Magazine Poll which found that children have lost touch with the natural world. 

“Teaching children to appreciate wildlife is essential to raising kind, compassionate citizens”, explains Suzanne Barnard, charity manager for the PETA Foundation. “When children learn about animals and their habitats, they develop respect and consideration for both animals and the environment, which helps build safe and caring communities.”

The PETA Foundation’s educational materials are designed to help children of all ages better understand and appreciate the natural world and recognise the importance of compassion and empathy for all living beings. The charity will deliver talks in schools during the autumn term and give away free resources at the TES Education Exhibition on 10 and 11 October at the National Hall in Olympia, London.
