Campaign to get children across the UK spending a million more hours in nature

Backyard Nature is giving children and young people the tools they need to enjoy and protect nature where they live. 
Launched in July, the campaign is a response to the UK’s growing nature crisis, with a massive 40% of the nation's species in steep decline. At the same time, children are spending less time enjoying nature. 
Research released by the campaign partners found that 60% of children want to spend more time outside, but 62% currently spend less than five hours per week outdoors, not including travelling to school. 
By encouraging children to spend one million hours in their backyards, the campaign is committed to truly connecting the next generation with the planet we all need their help to save.
