Share a picture of a #WildLondoner

Draw a #WildLondoner to celebrate London's wildlife!

 

Adder.jpg

Join us in celebrating London's 13,000 species of wildlife by picking up a scrap of paper, a pen and sharing a drawing of a species of your choice. You don't have to be a great artist, just up for giving it a go. 

 

You can pick any #WildLondoner.. animal, plant or fungi! 

 

Simply pick a #WildLondoner, draw your picture and then share it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or wherever using the hashtag #WildLondoner! Tweet us directly at @LondonNPC and we might add your drawing to this page.

 

To inspire you and set the standard, here's a drawing by of an adder Daniel Raven-Ellison to kick things off. 

 

For some suggestions, scroll down to see a list of some of London's species. They are all on the London Biodiversity Action Plan Priority Species list and are under threat, so they could do with some more supporters! Under the list you will find a Twitter feed of #WildLondoner posts.
