About Wild Wisdom Quiz

Wild Wisdom Quiz started in 2008 as an opportunity to sensitize students towards India's rich biodiversity and natural heritage. Since its launch, it has scaled up with every subsequent year to become Asia's biggest and India's only National level Wildlife Quiz. 

Wild Wisdom is a unique opportunity for schools across India to facilitate knowledge and consciousness among students towards environment and wildlife. It enables the participants to think critically ,research and apply what they learn in the process.It is a singular competition which focuses on learning rather than on scores. With participants from all over India, Wild wisdom quiz has already begun creating future environmental leaders who with their sharp minds and wise hearts can make the planet a better place to live.



WWQ 2018
The WWF-India Wild Wisdom Quiz that started in 2008 as a modest initiative in just one city, today reaches out to 51853 students in 800 schools in 260 cities and 14 states in two countries. The quiz works to support and align with targets set at Aichi between the Secretariat of the Convention for Biodiversity (CBD) and WWF-International. Thematic in nature, the Wild Wisdom Quiz promotes people's understanding of the value of biodiversity and enables acceptance of the steps necessary for its sustainable use (CBD Aichi Target 1).

THEME: THE PRICE OF OUR PLANET
This theme will highlight the significance of our irreplaceable 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

• How your choice will impact plants and animals that live both near and far, perhaps even on a different continent;
• How all living things that make up nature's web are so wonderful and varied, yet similar in their need to survive;
• The wonderful adaptations of so many plants and animals, some of which cannot live or thrive without the other.
• New discoveries and extinction,
• The many things in our lives today that are nature-inspired – from art and culture to science and technology

• Best practices and the use of sustainable innovation.
