The Echo Award is a new fun and accessible challenge for members of Wildlife Watch groups in Scotland.

The group that wins the Echo Award will receive our cuddly custom-made Echo (of Wildlife Watch magazine fame!) toy to take out on their adventures for a year. It will then be returned and passed on to the next winning group.

Your 2019 Echo Challenge

Make a poster that explains to people how wonderful beavers are. 

Beavers are a keystone species, and have a hugely beneficial impact on the environment around them. Numerous species, from frogs and dragonflies to fish and otters, will benefit from their presence in lochs and rivers.

From May beavers will become a European Protected Species in Scotland, which effectively marks their return as a native species after more than 400 years.

How to enter 

The deadline for entries is 31 August 2019. We would like a poster from each child in your group.
