Wildlife Watch

Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of The Wildlife Trusts and the UK’s leading environmental action club for kids.

Taking part in Wildlife Watch is an exciting way to explore your surroundings and get closer to the wildlife you share it with. We run lots of family events throughout the year and twelve Watch events.

Wildlife Watch members receive loads of exciting wildlife goodies throughout the year. You’ll receive a starter pack and four issues of Wildlife Watch magazine a year. This is packed full of amazing pictures, puzzles, competitions and you get a fantastic free wildlife poster with each issue. There is also a fun website for Wildlife Watchers: Visit the Wildlife Watch website
