Operation WildNation Competition Winners!

As part of our ‘Operation WildNation’ initiative we challenged children to express their views and love for nature through our ‘Let’s Go Wild’ creative competition.

With hundreds of entries received, primary school aged children all around the country went wild with their imagination and the level of creativity they displayed was immense.

Although a very difficult task, we have selected two overall winners and 6 special commendations. Our two overall winners will receive a school visit or virtual talk from Zoological Educator and campaign ambassador Sarah Sarsfield, along with an Operation WildNation kit for them and their school.

Well done to all the children and schools who got involved. Our mission to educate the nation on wildlife conservation is furthered by the involvement of each of you and the conversations you have ignited.
