Is Nature Play Extinct?

We have all heard the tales… how once upon a time, children ran free, exploring, climbing, discovering the woods in solitude. They used to listen to the sounds of the morning forest, pick at dry sap on the trees, eat apples from a tree branch, rest on mossy ground when they were tired.

But are they still out there?

Let’s visit the Netherlands, where one fortunate soul caught a glimpse of—not just one—but several!


The answer is no!

They are not extinct. And in fact, there have been sightings all over the world, a steady increase.

Is your child one of them?
