For Parents

The Bowdleflode Project invites a drawing of a fantasy animal made up from parts of an endangered species from all children between the ages of 5 and 12, but the Wildlife Park also looks after animals from grown-ups too.  Children of 8 and above benefit most, but if you make a visit, you will see some submitted by pupils in Reception classes and some from VIBsVery Important Bowdlefloders – celebrated artists such as Thierry Noir, the famous street artist from Berlin. You don’t have to be between 5 and 12 or a VIB to enter an animal – anyone can send their animal in.

Schools generally enter animals from a whole class, but home educators are very welcome to send in animals too. There is a list of School Members elsewhere on the website. If you would like your child to enter independently of their school, then please download the entry forms.

The aim is to introduce children to the plight of Endangered Species in a fun way, helping them to learn about nature, resources, geography, and so much more, but most importantly through creating and drawing a picture of their own fantasy animal.  The whole project is designed to support children’s development by matching Key Stages in the National Curriculum.

Here’s hoping that you will join our mission to provide young children with this incentive to be creative and to love and enjoy animals and support endangered species.
