The second week of March is Wildlife Week – a chance to learn about and enjoy some of nature’s Wildlife that we don’t often think about day to day. There is usually something going on around where you live so have a look for information on events near you. Here are a few that I’ve chosen:
The Wildlife Trusts is having a Seabird Theme this year, starting on 28th May at 10:00am. Location TBA.
The National Wildlife Federation has some good ideas about how to encourage your school to connect with Wildlife, including learning about Wildlife, researching threatened Wildlife and making an action plan, and symbolically Adopting Wildlife.
The List have a selection of 17 Wildlife Events happening across the U.K. throughout the year, including Exploring Glasgow’s Wildlife at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow in March, a Butterfly and Moth 9 Week Course at Brandon Marsh Nature Reserve in Coventry in October, and a Bouncing Bunnies Wildlife Afternoon for children aged up to 7 at Belfairs Woodland Centre in Leigh on Sea in April.
