Connecting children with nature18/10/2012
Are children today losing touch with nature? The RSPB is joining forces with academics from the University of Essex to find out how connected 8 to 12 year olds are to the natural world. On this edition of Nature’s Voice, Jane Markham talks to the RSPB’s chief executive Mike Clarke about the research and we hear from children and parents at a family Fun Day on a reserve with insights from TV psychologist Emma Kenny. Plus the winner of this year’s RSPB Telegraph Nature of Farming Awards tells us how he has made his farm a haven for wildlife while running a profitable business.
