Having worked with many schools to put conservation topics at the heart of their pupils’ learning, we know and understand the value of having real world issues at the centre of curriculum learning.

We’ve developed lots of ways to support fellow educators through our curriculum toolkits, resource packages and training opportunities to bring the curriculum to life. Using conservation topics, you can inspire and ignite a passion in your learners; helping them to build a connection with nature, the planet and species on it.

CONSERVATION CURRICULUM TOOLKITS

Our comprehensive toolkits will take your students on a journey through conservation. We’ve crafted lesson plans, progression overviews, resources and SO much more! Download everything you need for your year group here.
