Protecting the wildlife of the Falkland Islands.
Learning about and being a part of the natural environment is not only fun, but a way of connecting people to the world that surrounds them. Starting with tomorrow’s citizens and leaders, the WATCH Group gets hands-on with the outdoors.
As the junior branch of Falklands Conservation, the WATCH Group has 60 members aged 7-14. Each month, a whole-group activity focuses on an aspect of the natural world, from crafts and presentations on raptors to creating recycle bins to beachcombing at a Christmas barbeque. The entire group participates in a mammoth camping trip at Elephant Beach Farm each year. And each member is invited on a small-group weekend trip to a remote part of the Falklands.
The WATCH Group is generously sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank.

"In partnership with government, industry and the global community, Falklands Conservation will engage and empower the people of the Falkland Islands to take action with us to conserve biodiversity and manage landscapes and seascapes for the benefit of nature and people"
