For this February's competition, we’d asked you to think of a fantasy friendship between you and… a wild animal. We wanted to know that if you could be friends or form an alliance with ANY creature, which animal would you choose and why? Where would you go? And how would you help each other? Wow! What creative posters, letters and poems we received! Thank you to everyone who entered!


Congratulations to our 5 winners!

Snow Leopard

Chloe, age 10, Hockley 


Dolphin

Leo, age 7, Telford 


Octopus

Noah, age 7, Dorset 

"My animal friend would be an octopus and I would call him Cracken. We would dive into the ocean and pick up all the litter because it’s affecting his habitat and is killing and hurting the ocean. I would take him to my hockey training session, where Cracken could play in goal, I think he would be amazing in goal because he has 8 legs to stop the ball with. After hockey we would come home and play Nintendo, Cracken would need 4 controllers, 2 tentacles for each controller, I think he would choose to be Nabbit, Toad, Luigi and Toadette. After he would help me do an ocean jigsaw puzzle. Then we would go to the Sealife Centre where he could see another Octopus named Garmadon. By Noah"
