Shaun the Sheep On Tour: Respect, Protect, and Enjoy the Outdoors

Join Shaun the Sheep as he helps spread the word about the Countryside Code, promoting how to Respect, Protect, and Enjoy the outdoors. Since becoming Natural England’s Countryside Code Champion in 2023, Shaun has inspired over a million people to connect with nature. Don’t miss out on seeing Shaun’s nature-themed statue in Somerset this July!

From 13-24 July, a 1.5m statue of Shaun the Sheep, decorated with plants and animals found in our nature reserves, will be on display at the Avalon Marshes Centre, the gateway to the nature reserves on the Avalon Marshes. For children wanting to learn more about the Countryside Code, there is a Shaun the Sheep Fun Trail on offer.

This initiative is a collaboration between Natural England (the Countryside Code) and Aardman Animations (Shaun the Sheep).
