Workshops for Wildlife
This project worked with six primary schools and involved each school in learning about local wildlife. This involved learning from a local expert, such as the Three Bees or visiting a local community garden to learn about plants. The teams then needed to take some positive action for wildlife in their school grounds including planting for bees, or feeding birds, or laying log piles for bugs. Finally the pupils were tasked with making inter-active games which they were to run with the public at the Manchester Museum during their Extinction and Survival exhibition. The pupils engaged with hundreds of people with whom they played their games and discussed the issues of extinction. However, the pupils were keen to ask the public to commit to taking more action to help their local wildlife survive.
