Learning about and interacting with the natural environment is not only fun, but is a key way that children connect to the world that surrounds them. The Watch Group gets hands-on with the outdoors. As the junior branch of Falklands Conservation, the Watch Group currently has 46 members aged 8-16. There are regular group activities which look at a variety of aspects of the natural world and conservation

There are opportunities for camping and visiting remote parts of the Falklands, such as Volunteer Point, Fox Bay, Port Edgar, Port Stephens, Saunders Island, Pebble Island and Bleaker Island, to mention a few. The Watch Group relies on the good-will and generousity of the landowners and famers of the Falkland Islands to visit these places.
