8th Annual Writing Competiton 2023 - Wildlife: Nature’s Stars

It's this time of the year again! Our Kids World Travel Guide competition is now open! 

Kids World Travel Guide invites you to join in the 8th annual essay competition - 2023 Theme: 'Wildlife: Nature’s Stars'
The world is changing rapidly while people move and travel all around the world. More than ever climate change impacts all regions of our planet and creates challenges to all living beings.

The overexploitation of the natural environment for a growing population poses danger to wildlife habitats. We know that travel and tourism can uplift communities and support wildlife conservation efforts but that the rising numbers of tourists also are a burden on many areas around the world. 

Let’s be responsible and explore the world in a meaningful way. We must protect our environment and thus must learn about wildlife and habitats.

My dream of going on safari (What do you hope to experience when going on safari?)
