FAQs

Who is Wild Days suitable for?

Wild Days has been designed for primary school children, aged 4-11. However, if you want to do the activities with younger children, please do – you can use the videos and resources as a guide for your pre-schoolers and lead the activities that way. 

Why do I have to pay for Wildlife Communities and Food?

We launched as a paid-for service and released two weeks worth of resources about Wildlife Communities and Food. We have since received financial support from the Tomoro Foundation, Tanya and Michael Rembaum, and Neville Shulman to fund the future of Wild Days from Water Week onwards. As a charity, we still need to cover our costs for those first two weeks, which is why we’re still asking you to pay for those resources.

I’m a teacher and I want to use the Wildlife Communities and Food resources for my students - what do I do?

We’re offering these resources at a discount to teachers who want to use them to support students and parents at home. If you are a teacher, please email our education team to find out what's on offer and how you can use Wild Days.

If your school is still open for the children of key workers, you can access these resources for free. Please email our education team to get access.

Why now?

We know that things are tough right now, for everyone. The COVID-19 crisis is a huge threat to our economies, to our communities, and to our health and wellbeing. It’s really important to us at Earthwatch that we are able to continue our work to connect people to the natural world.

This is also a unique time to watch our natural world and understand how this pause in everyday human life is affecting the natural world. The feedback you send us will therefore also help our scientists understand more about the environmental impact of this moment in history. 

How else can I support Wild Days?

Wild Days is run by the UK charity Earthwatch Europe. As well as Wild Days, we work on a range of projects to help connect people with the natural world. If you would like to help us continue this work, please consider making a donation – we’d be really grateful! You can make your donation on our main Earthwatch website.
