Urbanization, migration to cities and modern living has completely disconnected humans particularly youngsters and children from nature and local biodiversity as they increasingly spend more time indoors, study limited by books and outdoor activities again limited to malls and such indoor recreational facilities. Trailing Biodiversity was a series of nature trails conceived to help children connect with the outdoor environment, local biodiversity, understand our connection to these and the need to conserve them.
