Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of the Wildlife Trust and helps young people discover nature

Wildlife Watch is the UK’s leading wildlife club for young people. It gives them the chance to discover the wildlife that lives in their local area and helps them to explore the natural world. There are different ways to get involved with Wildlife Watch.
