How to earn your badge
You should be aiming to work towards this badge over 6 to 12 months.
- Demonstrate your interest in the natural world by regularly taking part in relevant activities and using a variety of study and conservation
techniques over a period of time. Show how you’ve improved and developed your skills.
- Share skills in recording and observing the natural world with a group of young people.
- Take an in-depth look at how human activity is affecting the natural world, particularly pollution, deforestation and new farming techniques.
- Demonstrate a good knowledge of natural history terminology, particularly local animal and plant species along with other specialist words.
Every individual who undertakes an activity badge should face a similar degree of challenge and as a result some requirements may need to be adapted. It is completely acceptable to change some of the requirements of the badges to allow individuals to access the badge (for example where there are special needs, cultural issues, or religious considerations to take into account) and the requirements outlined for activity badges do allow for some flexibility in order to obtain the badge. If you would like help or advice when considering adapting the requirements of a badge please contact UK Headquarters.
