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.

Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities. For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility.
