Eco Champions visit The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary 2000 1494 The Bay CE Primary School

At The Bay CE School (Primary) there are seven Eco-Champions in Years 5 and 6 who have a key role in the school to make it more eco-friendly. 

The Eco Champion Committee members were recently given the exciting opportunity to visit The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary and meet conservationist/ TV presenter Megan McCubbin and conservationist/ author Richard Dikstra. 

The children were able to feed and meet meerkats face to face whilst they discussed the importance of places such as The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary. The Sanctuary provides a safe haven for rescue animals, conserves animals in the wild and educates schools and the public on the importance of conservation.

Fun Kids Radio recorded a piece focussing on Richard Dikstra’s book ‘Tigeropolis’, the problems facing tigers in the wild and what we can do to help. Other features include climate change, plastics, rewilding and water, which all links into COP26 and the Eco Champions mission to turn The Bay CE into an Eco School. Eco Schools educate and empower young people to make positive decisions and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves! The production team said, 

‘The Eco Champions asked some super scientific questions!’, 

‘The children were very polite and well behaved.’ 

The Wildheart Animal Sanctuary said 

‘It was very encouraging to see such passionate children wanting to make a positive difference in the world.’

As a thankyou Richard Dikstra has donated three signed copies of his book ‘Tigeropolis’ to The Bay CE School.
