The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers to "think globally" and "act locally" to preserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely related through natural resources and that we are interdependent with our world environment.
As a Boy Scout, you can earn this award by earning the following merit badges:
- Environmental Science OR Sustainability merit badge.
- Either Soil and Water Conservation OR
Fish and Wildlife Management merit badge.
- Citizenship in the World merit badge.
AND participate in a conservation project as part of an approved Scouting program totaling at least three hours that addresses a conservation need common to more than one country.
The Boy Scout World Conservation Award, No. 140, is an embroidered emblem bearing the standard World Conservation panda on a purple fleur-de-lis. The emblem has a tan background with a tan border. It is available at your BSA local council service center. The emblem is worn centered on the right pocket of the Boy Scout uniform shirt as a temporary patch.
