Special Species Competition

We are currently accepting entries from all age groups (even adults!)

To enter, create a new species and send the following to learning@linnean.org:
  • The first name, age (in years) and city of the person who created the special species
  • A picture of your special species
  • Its scientific and common name
  • A paragraph giving the reasons for its adaptations and a description of its habitat (aim for around 50 words)

We will be highlighting great works as we receive them.
Winners are awarded every year in April, July, September and December.
