Action 5: Celebrate!

Reflect, share and celebrate the difference you have made.

Completing an Embrace the Wild project is a huge achievement! Congratulations! In this final Action of the program, it is important to take some time to document your project and celebrate your impact with others. By doing so, you will build your communication skills and maybe even inspire someone to Embrace the Wild too. 

One of the most valuable ways to do this is by spending time in your project area. Notice all of the transformations that have occurred, as even the tiniest of details may have a big impact on living things. Imagine that you are a small animal coming to visit, stopping to rest under a newly planted shrub, or for a drink at a watering station. 

Ask yourself what you did well, or could improve and add, and how wildlife may benefit. Is your project now complete, or will you make some adjustments? What are your plans for ongoing monitoring? 

As you’ve completed the Embrace the Wild journey, have you picked up skills or knowledge, or learnt innovative new ways to apply them? Which aspects of the project did you enjoy the most, and did you learn anything new about yourself along the way? Reflect on the biggest challenges you faced in making your project, and how you overcame them. Take time to be proud of your achievement.
