Junior Wildlife Ranger is a non profit organization whos mission is to diversify visitor demographics in National Wildlife Refuges around the United States. They work with refuges and parks to create programs free for children to use to explore the park and earn rewards. As part of my 6 month internship, I was tasked with creating illustrations for JWR's children's activity books. I had to create mascot characters, covers, spot illustrations, and design badges.
Final badges I created for the activity booklet for Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. I had to research which animals lived in the refuge and choose which ones would be best suited for each level badge.
Design variations and final Design for At Home Neighborhood badge accompanying an activity kids can do at home during the time of Covid.
This last badge was designed for an embroidered patch children will receive once they completed their activity booklets. Design variations on the left and final design on the right.
