Have fun outdoors, discover nature and achieve awards!

Get started on our Wildlife Watch Awards by coming along to our Wildlife Watch sessions. Once you've completed your Hedgehog Award you can move on to the Kestrel Award. Find out when the next Wildlife Watch session is here.

Hedgehog Award

The Wildlife Watch Hedgehog Award is a simple and fun way to earn an award while exploring nature in different ways. To get started come along to one of our Wildlife Watch sessions and get a Hedgehog Card. Then every time you come along to session or event you can get a sticker. When you have 8 stickers you get a certificate! If you register on the Wildlife Watch website you can also get a very cool Hedgehog Award icon to display on your profile page.  Set up your profile page today!

You can also discover lots of activities to get you started on the Wildlife Watch website, anything from going for a walk, to exploring minibeasts in your garden. Learn more about your favourite plants and animals, download spotter sheets and play games, as well as finding Watch groups near you.

Kestrel Award

If you are a member of Wildlife Watch and you are over the age of eight, you can take part in the Kestrel award.  The Kestrel award has four wildlife challenges (Create it!, Do it!, Record it! and Shout about it!)  and you will need to complete them all to gain the award.  Once you have completed the challenges you will receive a certificate and badge and add the Kestrel icon to your website profile.
