Rare and Endangered Animals

About the event

With the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) we thought it would be timely to offer a session that focussed on climate change, animals, and conservation.

Donald and the Wildside Nature team have been fortunate enough to have worked in projects helping to protect many endangered animals around the world. Through this active and engaging workshop, we will use these first-hand experiences to explore conservation of species such as:

· Wandering Albatrosses breeding at Bird Island (South Georgia)

· The North Atlantic Right Whale, one of the most endangered large whale species in the world

· Black Rhinos in Tanzania and Namibia  

· Orangutans in Borneo

· Scottish Wildcat and red squirrel population

In this workshop your young zoologists will learn about a huge diversity of animals and the threats they face through fun interactive games and activities. We will explore how it is possible to save animals threatened with extinction if we humans can act in a responsible manner and learn about what we can all do to help conserve and protect species and habitats both locally and globally.

Children will receive a Wildside Nature "Young Conservationist" certificate after taking part in this workshop.
