Boy Scout World Conservation Award
The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Scouts 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.
The design of the badge incorporates the panda logo of the World Wildlife Fund, which sponsors the award on a worldwide basis with the fleur-de-lis, which is found on or as the basis for many nations' Scouting emblems. The World Conservation Award is earned by Scouts and Venturers in many other nations outside of the United States.
If a Cub Scout earned the Cub Scout version of this badge, it may not transfer to the Scouts BSA uniform - the scout must earn the award as a Scouts BSA member.
Earn the Scouts BSA World Conservation Award by:
- Earn the following merit badges:
- 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 World Conservation Award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a TEMPORARY patch. Only ONE Temporary patch may be worn at a time.

The Conservation Award simply does not have a separate dedicated location on the uniform outside of the right pocket which is designated for "temporary" patches.
You can choose to wear a patch permanently in that location. That choice is made by each scout or scouter.

For that reason it is deemed temporary.

@Richard - BSA patches categorized as 'temporary' may be displayed on the back of the merit badge sash according to the 2015 Guide to Awards and Insignia.
