At Peninsula Print we have been working alongside The Ulster Wildlife Trust to support a free educational programme known as Colour and Design in Nature. The Ulster Wildlife Trust is a local conservation charity which helps to look after Northern Ireland wildlife.
The Colour in Design and Nature programme covers 20 local Primary Schools across Newtownards and North Down and educates children on the importance of conservation of wildlife in Northern Ireland. Pupils explore how wildlife use colours to camouflage and protect themselves from predators and how many human designs have been inspired by nature for use in our everyday lives.
We hope that by educating local children on the importance of nature and wildlife to Northern Ireland that they will learn to respect their surroundings and community in the future.
