Our much awaited Junior Conservationist Workshop made its debut with 27 kids in Campuestohan last November 15, 2018. We want to take this project Negros-wide, and educate as many kids as we can about the importance of conservation, molding the future of tomorrow.
This first run was a great way for us to iron out the kinks, and make improvements to the flow and materials used. It was also the very first time Jacob, our Eagle Owl, represented TFI as our animal ambassador. Our animal keepers also took a recently rescued Serpent-Eagle, Snake, out on a little field trip to see how he fares with a crowd. Jacob did a much better job, while Snake has a bit more socializing to do before he earns his ambassador badge.
We still need a lot of help to get this program up and running. Printing of materials, logistics expense, materials expense, as well as entertainment for the kids, needs a whole lot of funding. We received donations from private enterprises for the printing of the Handbooks, but we still have a long way to go in funding this project to reach its goals.
