Osprey Education in The Gambia

Our recent trip to West Africa gave us the opportunity to get our West Africa education project underway. We visited three schools – Tanji, Kartong and Tendaba – where we spoke to the pupils about migration and the importance of conservation. We also gave the children at Tanji letters and football shirts from pupils at Whissendine and St Nicholas primary schools in Rutland. Check out the video to find out more about this exciting work.

Now we are now back in the UK, Junkung Jadama will be running the project in Gambia. JJ will be taking children from the three schools out on fieldtrips in search of Ospreys and other wildlife. These trips will be funded using the money we raised last year and will give the children the opportunity to use the binoculars and telescopes that we recently purchased for the project.
