WWF Nepal introduced Wild Wisdom Quiz in 2017 that reached out to 104 schools in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Lalitpur to aware and inform 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 it has reached out to more than 250 cities with a participation of 800 schools. Now, in its eleventh edition, the Wild Wisdom Quiz 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 buds of Nepal.

Wild Wisdom Quiz 2018 THEME: THE PRICE OF OUR PLANET?
To raise awareness about the value of nature and its conservation, WWF-India presents the theme for the Wild Wisdom Quiz 2018 – “THE PRICE OF OUR PLANET?”
Nature’s provision of food, water, air and shelter, maintaining the climate, the soil nutrient and water cycle and spiritual and recreational benefits are all together known as ‘ecosystem services’.
This year’s theme will highlight the significance of our irreplaceable and natural resources – forests and wildlife, oceans and rivers, plants and animals and our never-ending use of these resources. Through the quiz, each student will learn about
1. How your choice will impact plants and animals that live both near and far, perhaps even on a different continent;
2. How all living things that make up nature's web are so wonderful and varied, yet similar in their need to survive;
3. The wonderful adaptations of so many plants and animals, some of which cannot live or thrive without the other;
4. New discoveries and extinction;
5. The many things in our lives today that are nature-inspired – from art and culture to science and technology;
6. Best practices and the use of sustainable innovation.
