It’s Never Too Early to Start Interest How You Can Protect Nature

30.04.2019

On April 30, Via Pontica Foundation, together with the leadership and students from the Primary School “Mihail Lakatnik” Bourgas, organized an ecological event on the territory of the Ecopark for Biodiversity and Alternative Tourism “Vaya” in the context of the World Migratory Bird Days – a world raise of awareness campaign. You could learn more about the initiative at worldmigratorybirdday.org. Five different locations were designated on the territory of the park, which allowed us to engage children in the following activities: bird watching, scouting, beekeeping , applied arts and treasure hunting.

In line with the World Migratory birds’ days, we thoroughly explained how and when bird migration happens. During the interactive talk, all children got acquainted with rare and protected bird species on the territory of the Ecopark, the necessary equipment for their observation, and other curious facts about the nesting and migratory bird populations.

One of the highlights of the event were the scouting lessons on how to survive in nature and how to use and behave responsibly towards natural resources. What are the basic tricks that the experienced scouts use, and how important our pre-training is.

Students also had the opportunity to get acquainted with the different types of beehives, to observe a special demonstration, glass beehive and to taste the organic production of our own beehives. This sweet experince was meant to emphasize on the importance of bee families for human existence and to teach small visitors that their conservation is of vital importance.

The applied arts and sport activities that complimented the enjoyable experience, also gave us the opportunity to grasp and process everything learned in the course of the environmental education that took place during the event.

Up to new meetings in our shared care for nature!
