As part of the Osprey Flyways Project we organised the inaugural World Osprey Week (WOW) from 24th to 28th March 2014. WOW provided 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.
In all, more than 100 schools from three different continents got involved! And don’t worry if you missed it: World Osprey Week 2015 will be even bigger and better. It takes place from 23rd-29h March 2015 and you can sign-up now to gain access to free teaching resources and to make links with other schools.
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. Each school is also added to our interactive map, and listed as one of our Osprey Flyways Project Schools – allowing teachers 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!
We are very grateful to Swarovski Optik for sponsoring World Osprey Week and to Jackie and Pete Murray and Alex Kilford for writing the school lesson plans.
