Colour in and share a poster to save our seabirds

As well as doing practical things to help wildlife, we can also spread the word about environmental issues. This will mean more people will know what they can do, and more people will help save nature! Scotland’s seabirds have declined by almost 50% since the 1980’s. Their survival depends on our action – can you help save our seabirds?

How to make your swallow migration journey wheel

  1. Ask each child to colour in the poster to help spread the word about what we can do to save our seabirds.
  2. As they colour, talk to the children about the actions highlighted. Can you do any of these things as a class?
  3. Once finished, ask the children who they would like to share their poster with. Should it be displayed somewhere, or given to someone for them to learn from or display? Can children talk to someone about actions to save seabirds? Who would the class like to share this information with? (Think about the audiences the children can share these messages with e.g. friends, the wider school, family, local community groups and businesses)
