The World Conservation Award was established originally for Boy Scouts to
earn as a precursor or "starting point" for the William T. Hornaday
Award. As the program grew, the award was reformulated for Cub Scouts
and WEBELOS Cub Scouts to earn as well.
It is one of only three international awards which are supposed to be
common to all member nations of the World Organization of Scouting
Movements. Therefore, a Scout in India and a Scout in Indiana that
completed similar requirements would wear the badge.
The badge is a TEMPORARY PATCH, not a permanent one like the World
Crest. It is worn as a TEMPORARY PATCH, centered on the right pocket
of the Cub Scout or WEBELOS Scout uniform, and comes in colors
matching the Cub Scout uniform as well as matching the Boy Scout tan
The award's approval rest in your local Council's Conservation and
Outdoor committee or within the Advancement Committee, depending on
which way your local Council has set those committees up.
The only information I have readily is that for Cub Scouts, two
conservation-related achievements and two conservation-related
electives must be completed for the award, in addition to performing a
conservation service project with several other Cub Scouts or with a
Den or Pack.
There are two Achievements and at least four Electives with a
conservation or environmental theme for the Wolf and the Bear badges.
For WEBELOS Cub Scouts, you need to earn the Forester, Naturalist, and
Outdoorsman activity badges and participate in a Den or Pack
