New scheme to make primary schools more wildlife friendly

Activities include making bird feeders and upcycling plant pots

A new 'Wilder School' award scheme for the Island's primary schools has been launched by the Manx Wildlife Trust.

The aim is to help youngsters learn about wildlife while making their school grounds more wildlife friendly.

To achieve the award, classes or eco clubs are being invited to complete at least five of ten suggested activities - ranging from making bird feeders to upcycling plant pots.

Schools can get involved by downloading the information booklet HERE.
