Disney and The Nature Conservancy Encourage Kids to Spend Time in Nature

Running, biking, hiking and playing outdoors. All of these activities are simple, easy and fun—and they connect you and your family with nature.

At Disney, we believe that conserving nature begins with connecting to nature. Direct experience with the outdoors is the most highly cited influence on conservation values and inspires us to care about our planet.

The Nature Conservancy, with support from Disney, recently surveyed parents of children between the ages of three and 18 in the U.S., Brazil, China, France and Hong Kong on the topic of kids and nature. This is the first global survey to capture not only how much time kids spend outside, but also parents’ perspectives on how much importance they place on nature.
