Many children across the UK can't tell their blue tits from their bumblebees. A new survey conducted by the Hoop Family App has found that British kids have become so disconnected from nature that they are now struggling to identify a whole host of plant
and animal species. 83 percent of children did not know what a bumblebee looks like while 82 percent could not name an oak leaf.
65 percent were not able to identify a blue tit, a bird species
commonly found in British gardens. More than half of the 1,000 children polled wee also unable to name stinging nettles. It isn't all bleak unawareness thankfully with nearly a quarter saying they knew what a conker looks like while 97 percent were able to identify a fox.
