Local School Children Create Wicked Wildlife From Waste!

Tilly's Butterfly, Top 3

Tilly’s Butterfly, Top 3

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales recently ran a competition for schools in South Wales to turn any school and household waste into wicked wildlife! Children were challenged to create animals using waste from around school or home, such as bumblebees from bottle tops or badgers from crisp packets.

We had a fantastic response, with 8 schools taking part and over 100 children getting creative and using their imagination to make marvellous upcycled animals.

Our judges had a very hard job choosing winners from the amazing display but the Top 3 were chosen as Tilly’s butterfly from St Mary’s and St Patrick’s RC Primary, Josh’s Turtle from Cefn Glas Primary and the Garth Primary’s Sunshine Group’s owl. These children have won Wildlife Trust School
