We’d love to invite you to get involved in our FREE school webinar, and our wild animal film and photo competition. Despite the challenges of the past year, we’re more determined than ever to enable young people, no matter where they are, to learn about wildlife and the environment. Here are two exciting new opportunities.
School kids, teachers and parents are invited to join award-winning wildlife filmmaker and photographer Isabelle Groc, in conversation with Born Free Co-Founder and Bafta winning actress Virginia McKenna OBE.
As part of our Youth Wildlife Filmmaker and Photographer of the Year competition Virginia will talk about her illustrious film career and how she and her late husband, Bill Travers MBE, founded international wildlife charity Born Free with their son Will Travers OBE. There will also be time for students to ask Virginia their own questions.
This is the second in a series of webinars on offer during the 2021 summer term. We will cover topics such as creativity, rainforests, pangolins, cocoa production and endangered species.
With just one month left to enter our first Youth Wildlife Filmmaker and Photographer of the Year competition, the wonderful Liz Bonnin, who you might recognise from the BBC’s Blue Planet Live, has come up with some top tips to get your started.
Prizes include: a brand new camera, photography courses and vouchers*
Liz Bonnin, wildlife presenter and biologist says: “The UK is sadly one of the most nature depleted countries in the world. But we need the natural world to thrive and to survive, it’s our life support system. So, by sharing your stories of the beauty of nature and what people are doing to protect it, you’re helping create a beautiful ripple effect of change our planet so desperately needs.”
