Whilst much of the world is in lockdown yet again, many parents are homeschooling their children. To help with this, we have put together a Conservation Education Booklet for you to work through with your children.

With some fun activities and seriously interesting facts about animals and their habitats, we are sure it will be enjoyed by all. Now, more than ever, it is important to appreciate, protect and be inspired by the natural world.

Springtime is the time when many of your children would have visited the Wildlife Park as part of their curriculum. We have tried to include much of the information we hope they may have gleaned from their trip.

Much of the information is for mixed levels of ability as we trust the parents can adapt for the level of the child. We believe exposure to the vocabulary from early on, encourages children to grasp the concepts sooner so try to use the 'big' words but explain what they mean, as you go.

Enjoy! We would very much appreciate your feedback or requests. Please get in touch if you have any questions: info@awcp.gi
