Biodiversity at School

Help care for your local environment.

Below are some suggestions for ways in which schools can help conserve biodiversity:

  • Install recycling bins for different materials (glass, plastic, cans, paper)
  • Form an Eco Club to learn about wildlife and conservation and carry out projects.  If you affiliate to national organisations such as RSPB’s Wildlife Explorers, or The Wildlife Trusts’ Watch groups, you will have access to an excellent range of ideas and resources.
  • The club could produce an environmental newsletter that could go to all the pupils and could report on activities carried out in class, conservation appeals, reports of wildlife seen in (e.g. in the pond/wildlife garden) and out of school.
  • Create a wildlife garden.  You could include features such as a pond/bog garden, feeding station, and butterfly boarder.  Contact Wildlife Gardening North Wales for further advice on: 01248 360981.
  • Organise a wildlife trail: it could lead around the school grounds or at a nearby site.
  • Build bird boxes/tables or bat boxes in craft lessons, they could be taken home or put up in the wildlife garden.
  • Design posters to be put up around the school to inform people about wildlife and biodiversity.  Ideas could come from your wildlife garden, nature trail or conservation issues discussed in class/environmental club.
  • Hold a wildlife ballot to see which plants and animals are the most popular in your school
  • Encourage parents and pupils to walk, cycle, or share lifts to school to cut down on the number of cars and pollution in the area.
