Juning into Nature II
Thanks to Myerscough College who have recently supported WildAid as part of ther Country Fayre and Open Day. Myerscough College held their ever popular Open Day and WildAid was lucky enough to be offered a stall pitch to celebrate this amazing open day.
With thousands of visitors attending the day WildAid engaged with hundreds of visitors intrigued to take part in an 'Oily experiment' and our ever popular nature table. Our workshops intend to raise the profile of natural history and some of the hazards facing wildlfie on a daily basis.
Visitors experimented what would happen to swans feathers when they come into contact with contaminated water. The results were remarkable. They lost all their waterproofing and also weighed between 2 to 3 times heavier. This welfare experiment really raised awareness of the unsatisfactory affects polluted water has on birds and on the environment.
Our nature table also found out some competitive ambitions between youngsters very keen to correctly guess the answers with the natural items before them.
We would like to thank everyone who visited our workshops and to everyone who so generously donated for our causes. All our workshops are available for school, college, university and community groups. Please contact us for further information.
"It's all about encouraging people to participate and learn about the natural world through hands on discovery."
