Bristol Children Go Nuts for Secret World!

Nature-loving children from Bristol have been foraging seeds and nuts for the animals Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset.

Secret World rescues, rehabilitates and releases over 5,000 animals each year and relies on donations from the public to feed the animals in their care. They recently asked for foraged foods on social media as certain animals, namely squirrels and dormice, are dependent on them for nourishment.

Greenbank Forest School Childminding was founded in 2014 by Mike Williams and Charissa de Zeeuw. The couple operates a childminding practice with a forest school ethos which means they take the children in their care, toddlers and pre-schoolers, out in the great outdoors on most days and the animals at Secret World have benefits from their foraging.
