We had a great day spreading awareness about British native wildlife and their need for protection and conservation at Sayer’s Croft for the Ewhurst Family Fun Day.
Providing people with the opportunity to encounter many of these animals for the first time, some of which they’d never heard of, is very rewarding. We had some fantastic conversations covering topics such as wildlife conservation, heathland habitats, wildlife rehabilitation, invasive species, animal adaptations, falconry practices in bird of prey conservation and how to create a wildlife friendly garden.
The reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates we brought with us were of great interest. Of course Freddie our tawny owl was very popular as usual, but the little hedgehog was definitely a firm favourite!
