Leaders introduced the work of The RSPB with help from volunteers from the audience. As well as looking at varying roles of RSPB staff (such as conservation scientists, nature reserve workers and teams wrking to combat wildlife crime) the group also learned that we are part of a bigger global organisation: BirdLife International.

The group then looked at a slection of man-made wildlife homes, matching a selection of British wild animals to their ideal residence.

Everyone made a Bug Bungalow to take home – an individual invertebrate habitat that will provide a safe haven for minibeasts to shelter and over winter.

The session finished with a quick environmental game – The Feather Game. It shows how human beings have positive and negative impacts wildlife habitats and how we can all take steps to help wildlife.

Thank you St Pauls for a being so interested in ‘Giving Nature a Home’.
