Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of the Wildlife Trusts and the UK's leading environmental action club for kids. It encourages 5-12 year olds to have an interest in wildlife, and the world around them, through activities on environmental and natural history topics in a fun and educational setting. Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Watch has three local groups where children meet and have fun exploring their local environments and taking practical action for wildlife.
This is your chance to help inspire the next generation of environmentalists!
Being a Wildlife Watch Leader won't take up too much time and you don't need to be an expert - just enthusiastic, concerned about the environment and enjoy working with children and young people!
