Crocworld and Bushbabies May Conservation Talk for Kids will focus on Birds

Calling on kids aged four to 16 years, flock to Scottburgh-based Crocworld Conservation Centre on Saturday, 29 May from 8:45am to 10am for this month’s conservation talk hosted by Crocworld and local nature and wildlife-education group, Bushbabies.

The May theme will focus on birds, from Fish Eagles to Marabou storks, the topic is set to ‘fly’ with the kiddies, and with Crocworld being home to more than 200 local bird species that can be identified flying around the centre, it’s set to be a fun and educational morning for all.

Crocworld recently added a new feature to the centre, The Raptor Wing and extended the existing aviary which is home to a number of interesting birds, among them the Booted Eagles, Eurasian Eagle Owls, Harris Hawk and Jackal Buzzards.

Run by guest speakers, as well as Natalie Crowley of Bushbabies; and Crocworld Conservation Centre’s James Wittstock (acting Centre Manager), Ryne Ferguson (Bird Curator), and Wade Kilian (Reptile Curator), kids will leave feeling inspired.

Bushbabies was established by Natalie Crowley in 2017 as a way to connect children with nature. This is an informal organisation which hosts ongoing talks, with regular attendees wearing uniforms and gaining badges. However, no membership is required.
