Proximity to National Parks Can Improve Health and Wealth of Children

Leadership Instincts

Children living near national parks will turn out to be healthy and wealthy, according to a new research report from World Wildlife Fund.

 The report is based on data collected from 87,000 people in 34 developing nations. Children in low income economies but living near to national parks had higher wealth levels and healthier. Tourism provides income for households that improves the access to  health care and food. The likelihood of poverty was less and children were generally taller in these areas.


 The implications of the study are that synergy is attained in conserving biodiversity and ensuring health, wealth and happiness in society even in the case of low- income economies.
