Squirrels Go Wild Activity Badge

Squirrels Go Wild Activity Badge

Wild animals make the world a better place. Learn about animals that live nearby and far away, then work together to help them.

How to earn your badge:

  1. Animals live all around us, from tiny insects to big, strong deer. Find out about some animals that live near you and see what you can learn about some animals that live far away.

    You could think about different pets that people have, draw your favourite animals, go minibeast hunting, or try a virtual safari.

  2. Lots of animals use plants for food and shelter, including hungry caterpillars that munch on leaves and birds that nest in trees. Find out about what animals in your local area like to eat and where they like to live.

    You could go on a walk and talk about what you find or visit a local park.

  3. Animals sometimes need our help to stay safe and healthy – especially if people have damaged the places that they live. Work together to make something that helps plants or animals.

    You could make a yummy bird feeder, build a bug house, find out about places that look after animals, or collect and recycle some litter to clean up your local area.
