Full Project Summary
The Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society provides education programs to the public, including schools, seniors’ residences, libraries, fairs, festivals, The Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald’s House and other appropriate venues. The Education program serves to inform the public about our services emphasizing the value of wildlife rehabilitation, address conservation issues, provide information (physiology/adaptations/migration) about native wildlife and create conversation around the implications of human activities on the health and safety of wild animals.
Programs are booked all year round. Each presentation is interactive with live animal and multimedia. The presentations are 1 hour in length.
CWRS is a not for profit registered charity that receives no regular Government or City funding and as such we ask for a $125.00 donation per presentation (within the city limits – out of town donations are slightly more) payable the day of the presentation. A Tax Receipt can be issued for the donation and will be sent in the mail after the presentation day if one has been requested.
Information for Educators
CWRS visits hundreds of schools every year inspiring the minds of thousands of children. Our programs are highly rated by schools and children.
Swainson’s hawks are a common Alberta hawk species that can be seen in Alberta from April - September. This program fits very well into discussions about native landscapes and ecosystems as well as with learning about conservation, habitat protection and native species.
Project OutcomeWe expect that Lito will be an inspiration to your students to help and admire native wildlife
