Why your school should Wear it Wild
In the land of the koala, the quoll and the platypus, our mammals are the most distinctive in the world. 86% can’t be found anywhere else. Sadly, Australia has the highest mammal extinction rate in the world, and these iconic species are at risk of disappearing forever. Your school can help shine a spotlight on nature loss by Wearing it Wild this Earth Hour Schools Day and raising funds to help regenerate nature.
