It's a challenge for you to connect with the natural world in brave new ways and earn awards as you go. Do you have what it takes to achieve gold?

Our activities resources are available in both English and Welsh. You can find them as downloadable documents on the relevent activities pages.

To let you know...

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are only sending personalised electronic certificates to those that achieve an RSPB’s Wild Challenge award at this time. We are unable to send stickers. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope you still enjoy taking part.
