From the Scouting magazine archives: The World Conservation Award

When the World Wildlife Fund, the Boy Scouts of America and other World Scouting organizations launched the World Conservation Award in 1975, the patch was just for Scouts BSA (known at the time as Boy Scouts).

Since then, the award has expanded to include Cub Scouts, Venturers and Sea Scouts. The requirements have been updated along the way to reflect changes in the advancement program.
