Setanta is a Green Blue Peter Badge Winner!

26th Nov 2015
Setanta is a Green Blue Peter Badge Winner!

Setanta Gorman Crane is a Green Blue Peter badge winner. 

This badge is awarded to young people who impress judges with a poster or letter about the environment. Setanta was awarded her badge for her work with butterflies. Setanta began by purchasing 10 caterpillars. She took great care of these creatures until they were ready to form a chrysalis. Once in chrysalis form she placed them in a safe habitat she produced and waited for the butterflies to emerge. The butterflies, when they arrived, were fed on flowers and sugar water until they grew strong. Once ready Setanta released her butterflies into the wild. She then wrote about her experiences and took many  photographs. The judges were enthralled with her work. Setanta is an Eco star!!
