Getting our kids outdoors

NaturallyGC Junior Wild Defenders

The NaturallyGC Junior Wild Defenders program aims to empower young people to take action to preserve nature and learn about the importance of our flora, fauna and the environment around us through interactive and engaging educational booklets.

Each booklet includes several challenges and tasks to prompt child-led exploration of a nature or conservation-based topic. Some of the tasks include on ground action, drawing, design, art, building, photography, quizzes and getting crafty.

It’s easy for you to download a digital copy from the City of Gold Coast Website. Complete them all and collect your badges! Simply click on one of the 12 topics to get started and download a copy of the poster and digital badges to start your collection. Once you’ve completed all 12 you’re an official Junior Wild Defender.

This program was proudly produced in conjunction with local organisation Green Heroes.

Green Heroes believe that every child has the power to make a positive impact on the environment; first through understanding, followed by action.

You can also join our extensive range of free and low cost nature based activities and workshops through the NaturallyGC program.
