Wild Wisdom Quiz | WWF

Wild Wisdom Quiz (WWQ) was first introduced by WWF Nepal in 2017. WWQ reached out to 104 schools in Kathmandu Valley in 2017 and 133 schools in Kathmandu Valley, Chitwan and Nepalgunj in 2018 to educate students about biodiversity and natural resources and the necessary steps for its sustainable use. The program aims to support and align its understanding with Aichi target 1 set between the Secretariat of the Convention for Biodiversity (CBD) and WWF-International.

The WWF-India Wild Wisdom Quiz started in 2008 as a modest initiative, today has become Asia’s biggest and India’s only national level quiz on wildlife.
 
WWF Nepal seeks to explore and capitalize the potential of the quiz in its own context to reach out to young aspiring conservationists of Nepal.
