Aussie kids are worried about the planet, according to new research.
WWF-Australia says six out of 10 kids – aged between seven and 12 years old – are concerned about one or more environmental issues.
In a study of 500 children, some ranked environmental worries over terrorism (23 per cent) and nearly a third (30 per cent) were concerned about loss of animal species.
Almost seven out of 10 kids said it was “very important” for people do something to protect the environment.
“I have lots of good ideas about how kids can make a difference. From not wasting food, to walking to school, to turning off lights, to buying food from local markets,” says Lily, 10, from Adelaide.
