Tomorrow’s diversity depends on teaching today’s children to conserve wildlife and value and appreciate the same. Awareness of conservation begins when children are young. Thus taking, ‘Extinct and Endangered species’ as the theme for the month, your little ones will learn about these species and also one’s role and responsibility as a global citizen. We look upon the young generation to be a part of the conservation drive and help us conserve planet Earth.
