The tale of Red Riding Hood dates back as far as the 10th century. Why is it still the first encounter children have with the wolf?
kids love wildlife
An education programme
for the next generation
The next generation is going to be severely affected by the loss of wild animals and habitats that humans are destroying at an unprecedented rate.
Kids Love Wildlife is an education programme that teaches children about the importance of wild ecosystems.
Our long term goal is to address the main cause of habitat loss: human actions. Investing in the next generation's understanding of wildness is critical to their survival and quality of life.
THANK YOU TO
As we bring Kids Love Wildlife into a world class education programme, WOLF is delighted to be working with Layla Benabid, a renowned French children's illustrator and author, who has become a major contributor to the project.
Layla has kindly donated her character Tilou to become the hero of our stories, almost literally bringing to life the important messages within our stories.
It is a sad truth that almost from birth we are taught to fear the wolf. Storytelling is a powerful medium: hearing the tale of Red Riding Hood sets children up to view the wolf with suspicion for the rest of their lives.
Meet Tilou: he is the star of the show in all of our stories. A young wolf learning about the world around him, we will join his adventures so children can learn about wildlife around them with an emotional connection
how the programme comes to life
Our mission is to bring scientific evidence to children in a fun, engaging way through workshops starring little Tilou the wolf.
The outcome of the project will be to deliver workshops to 1,500 children in person by the end of 2018 and make resources available to teachers across Spain. Our aim is to reach 20,000 children by the end of 2019.
Kids Love Wildlife requires five stages of work to become a success.
