Bing’s Nature Explorers

Bing and Flop from the multi-award winning animated children’s television series will be coming to WWT Arundel Wetland Centre in a couple of weeks for the launch of ‘Bing’s Nature Explorers’. A new joint event programme between WWT, the charity for wetlands and wildlife, and independent creative studio Acamar Films.

Running from Saturday 23 March until Sunday 2 June, Bing’s Nature Explorers will encourage little and big explorers alike to discover and learn about wetland nature and wildlife through a programme of family-friendly activities.

The programme will include an activity trail featuring Bing and his friends, which will encourage little legs to discover the signs of spring and learn more about the range of plants, birds and animals that call the wetlands home.

WWT Arundel Wetland Centre will be hosting meet and greets with Bing and Flop from April 10-14 plus, Bing storytelling sessions, featuring the books from HarperCollins, on weekends and holidays from March 23-June 2.

There will be Bing merchandise available at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre’s shop whilst the programme is running. Every child who completes the trail will also receive a souvenir Bing sticker.

Other activities happening at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre during the Bing programme will include:

  • Diving duck fish feed, daily at noon
  • Pelican Keeper Talk, daily at 2 pm
  • Pond dipping, weekends and holidays
  • Wetland Discovery Boat Safaris,


Elizabeth Pearce, Learning Manager at WWT Arundel Wetland Centre said: “Bing is one of TV’s best loved characters, and a brilliant advocate for getting outdoors and learning through play and discovery – which is exactly what we at WWT Arundel are all about!

“We’re super excited to be teaming up with Bing and his friends to encourage younger generations to become nature explorers and learn about what makes UK wetland wildlife so special, and to inspire them to help protect the future of wetlands in the UK.”


Kirsty Southgate, Director of Experiential and Promotions at Acamar Films, added: “Bing and his friends love finding opportunities to play outside, and learn more about the plants and animals around them. We hope that visitors to WWT Arundel also find the same joy in exploring and learning more about UK wetland wildlife.”

Bing’s Nature Explorers will run from Saturday 23 March until Sunday 2 June. All activities will be included in the admission price or free for WWT members. For more information, click here 

WWT, the charity for wetlands and wildlife

WWT Wetland Centres are full of life, and rich with sights and sounds. Through sensory and seasonal events that encourage nature connection, WWT, the charity for wetlands and wildlife, makes learning about wetlands and how important they are to our lives and our natural world more accessible for everyone. Bing’s Nature Explorers is one such event. With help from two of the most popular children’s television characters Bing and Flop, WWT is highlighting what makes wetlands and wetland wildlife so special in a family-friendly way, which focuses more on creating emotional connections than having lots of knowledge.
