In nature each puppy needs its mother, to learn how to feed, to defend itself, to face the dangers of the world. But every day dozens of elephants, rhinos, tigers, bears, are killed by poaching or because of the destruction of their environment. Their puppies are alone, with little chance of surviving.
In Italy, almost every 43 minutes there is a crime against the environment, killing of protected species, illegal trade in fauna and flora up to illegal fishing. The work of the volunteers of the WWF is particularly important as we are a country with a high rate of lawlessness and environmental and at the same time we have the European record of “richness in biodiversity.”

In the children’s Lab there will be laboratories, face painting, video and much more as well as meet volunteers in order to know the activities that WWF held on territory.
