Primary schools biodiversity competitions
All primary schools in Caithness were invited to take part in a biodiversity themed competition each year for three years. The type of competitions considered included 1) recording wildlife in the school grounds and compiling a scrap book that includes drawings and species lists. 2) poster and poem competitions that promote the wildlife of Caithness. 3) Projects based on a particular wildlife habitat and/or species that is appropriate to the location of the school e.g. seaside animals and plants, woodland animals. Each year the winners were given a biodiversity related tour.
