School and Group Events
South West Peregrine can offer a unique learning experience for Children and Adults alike
The group who have been studying Peregrine Falcon's throughout Devon and Cornwall since 2007 and recognise the importance of engagement with the local community and especially the chance to work with the conservationists of the future.
We have been running an exhibit and talk for local birding groups and people with an interest in wildlife for sometime as well as on the road at events such as Birdfair (Rutland Water)and Plymouth Mount Batten BioBlitz.
We are an affiliated group to the Hawk and Owl Trust, and can offer an exciting, visually stimulating and educational display to children of most ages.
For Schools the talk encompasses many of the core curriculum subjects ranging from Anatomy, Seasons and Materials meaning a relevance to what children are studying in class today.
The display and talk does not involve any live animals, however is full of engaging imagery, sound clips and videos as well as many interactive items for students from measuring their wingspan, to weighing the birds and understanding the life-cycle of this incredible animal (the fastest on the planet). Most importantly it offers a valuable close up experience of the Natural World that can be explored right here in the South West of England.
The Peregrine is an apex predator that lives a life of persecution and through education we can all help to change that mindset.
