Free Family Fun in Nature -Discovering Sharks and Seabirds

Does your family love nature? Are your children keen to learn more about the local environment? The next Family Eco-Discovery workshop for families with young children (ages 4 -11) will explore animals that soar and swim.
Sharks are the most feared animals in our oceans but what is fact and what is fiction and how can we live together? Join sealife expert Raeleen Draper to learn how sharks are amazing creatures with unrecognised superpowers who play an important role in the marine environment. Children will use their knowledge to make a clay model shark.

The program will also feature shore and sea birds and how they use their environment.
Discover bird body parts used to find food and the strategies that shorebirds use to migrate thousands of miles. Activities will help participants to understand ways to protect and respect these unique birds.
