As part of the Osprey Flyways Project we are organising the third World Osprey Week (WOW) from 11th – 15th April 2016. WOW is an exciting opportunity for schools to follow the amazing migratory journeys of satellite-tagged ospreys and to make contact with other schools on the migratory flyways.
You can sign up to WOW at any time and will gain access to a huge range of free online teaching resources. So do not delay, sign up now. Schools from 12 different countries have already registered!
2016 will be a special year for the Rutland Osprey Project as we shall celebrate 20 years of Rutland Ospreys with a schools Osprey Festival. You can find out how your school can be part of this celebration by clicking here.
We’re currently following nine satellite-tagged Ospreys. Check our our brand new interactive map to see the latest locations of each of them. You can also watch an animation of their previous migrations and discover more about each individual bird.
Schools signing up for WOW and the Osprey Flyways Project get free access to online resources to help students learn more about Ospreys and their amazing journeys. To see a full resources list click here. You can also chose to add your school to our interactive map – allowing you to get in touch with other schools elsewhere on the migration flyway.
Click here to register your school. You’ll get free access to the online teaching resources and your own editable page where you can provide information about your school and local Ospreys. There’s also the opportunity to post examples of your Osprey work. You could even upload a short video!
