Details

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a wildlife presenter? Could you be the next Michaela Strachan or Chris Packham?

Now's the time to find out, at our brand new BBC Springwatch Experience at London Wetland Centre!

Head to the Lodge - our Springwatch set - grab a cue card, learn from the information provided and present your wildlife knowledge to camera, whilst sitting on a Springwatch-inspired sofa! There'll be wildlife clips on screen for you to talk about and you can even film your pieces to camera on your mobile phone. Using a specially adapted camera on set, you can position your mobile phone, record and then share your presenting skills on social media - to show everyone how good you are a being a wildlife presenter. You'll even have the chance to do your own research on the wonderful wildlife at our site by learning fascinating facts to come up with your own script!

And that's not all - there's also a competition to find the best presenter with some great prizes on offer. So if you think you've got what it takes to be the new face of wildlife presenting, then swap your sofa for our Springwatch sofa at London Wetland Centre, and take part in this exclusive Springwatch Experience.
