Behind the Badge with Lancashire Police
WildAid was recently invited back to the two day event by the Rural and Wildlife Crime Department at Lancashire Police headquarters near Preston. Over 20,000 visitors attended the 2 day event offering a unique opportunity to engage visitors with our wildlife workshops.
Our wildlife workshops and nature displays were really intriguing for visitors. They offer just one example of how our work really connects with young people. Our picture shows 8 year old Harrison, from Poulton-le-Fylde, observing a badger skull and seen discussing the life of badgers with WildAid Charlie. We were talking for over 10 minutes about badgers. WildAid Charlie also found that Harrison is very fond of Owls since he recently based a school project on Barn Owls.
WildAid Charlie said ' I have to thank Lancashire Police for this opportunity to display our work and enabling visitors to expereince our really unique natural history workshop where everyone can connect to wildlife. We are passionate that everyone we meet has a positive impact connecting with the natural environment.
We are always very keen to work with people of all ages, especially young people who can really make a difference for the natural environment as well as their own lives.
"It's all about encouraging people to participate and learn about the natural world through hands on discovery."
