Our trip to West Africa earlier this year 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. As part of the link between the schools, we asked the children to describe where they live and tell us about the Ospreys that live near them. Wilby is from Whissendine Primary School and here he is telling us all about the Rutland Ospreys. We think he’s a future Springwatch presenter in the making!
