This year’s Owlet Day tied in with a special campaign by EAZA (European Association of Zoos and Aquaria) that is trying to encourage people to reduce their carbon footprint to help save species under threat in the Arctic and Antarctica. One of the ways to reduce your carbon footprint is to recycle which is why we decided to do some fun recycling and have a go at making an igloo out of empty milk bottles. The final result wasn’t quite igloo shaped as we started running out of milk bottles half way through and had to improvise but the owls didn’t seem to mind!
If you would like to learn more about reducing your carbon footprint or would like some ideas for fun milk bottle recycling projects you can download some special information sheets at the bottom of this page: http://www.owls.org/Education/education.htmBrownie Birthday Bash
This year the Brownies are celebrating their 100th Birthday and in May they came to Muncaster to have a big birthday party! The World Owl Trust was invited to join in with some Brownie/Owl themed activities.
Lots of preparation went into making the day special. (Including making a special ‘owl hunt’ game and designing special owl mascots for the Brownies) However it was worth it in the end because the day was amazing! 1,600 Brownies attended and most of them visited the World Owl Trust stall to play the games and make masks of their new owl mascots. The game was so popular that the Education Officer, Jennifer, has now put instructions of how to make it on the Guiding pages here: http://www.owls.org/Guiding/owlgames.htm
