Exeter Wildlife Champions Network
Through the education programme at Devon Wildlife Trust, children are encouraged to learn more about the world around them through exploration and taking practical action. Wherever they are proactive in their approach, they take on the role of being a Wildlife Champion.
To build on this natural interest and enthusiasm, a pilot project was launched in 2011 with the Beacon Learning Community in Exeter called the Wildlife Champions Network. This project is an inspiring and innovative approach to learning about widlife. School children form a wildlife council in their school, supported by staff and DWT's education team. This wildlife council is responsbilbe for making decisions and taking action for wildlife in their school grounds and local community. Following the unprecedented success of the pilot, the project has been expanded to include the Central Learning Community.
At present the Wildlife Champions Network is focused in Exeter through the Exeter Wild City project but has a vision of drawing in schools from across Devon.

The Network is organised and managed by DWT's Education Officer, Paul Martin, who can be contacted for more information about the Network and how your school or learning community could join.
