Wildlife At School
Young wildlife lovers like me will probably all think the same thing. Why is there no mention of wildlife or looking after our planet at school. Saying that I was lucky that in Primary School I ran my own wildlife club as we had a conservation area which had a pond, Blue Tit nest box, feeding station and a family of foxes (but its not like that in every Primary School!) Now I am in Secondary School (Year 8) We learn nothing at all about wildlife (especially British wildlife) This makes no sense to me at all. Yes we have to learn lessons like English, Maths and Science but isn't it important to learn about the animals that share our planet?

Another issue is that every day at least one bag of rubbish is littered across my school, with seagulls flying around that could easily get caught and injure them. This is partly due to the lack of education about matters like this! Why can't we learn about how to save hedgehogs, about the amazing hen harrier and wildlife in our gardens at school? Isn't it important?
My friends look at me weirdly if I mention anything to do with wildlife which I hope in 10 years won't be the case, due to the growing amount of young wildlife enthusiasts. I hope all young people and adults will learn to respect wildlife and that wildlife will be regularly taught in all schools across the country!
