Joy in learning about nature

Dear Friend,

 

Our Junior Rangers have been keeping busy since our last update. We’re excited to share with you how we’re putting your donations to use, and why we still need your help.

  • In early December, the Junior Rangers in the communities of La Salvia and El Rosario carried out educational activities as part of their migratory bird curriculum. This included a ‘Festival of Kites’ with the motto “sing, fly and soar like birds.” The children let their kites fly across the beach to represent the migratory birds that fly across their communities.

  • The following month, 5 rangers and 15 Junior Rangers in Ostional participated in the Christmas bird count by making observations in the mangroves and wooded areas. Over 70 community members participated, and by the end of the count, they had made a total of 3,155 observations with 166 species counted. Some of the species included the ruddy woodcreeper (Dendrocincla homochroa) and the keel-billed toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus). We are so glad to have participated in our 7th annual Christmas bird count. Thank you for making this possible!

  • If you’ve been keeping up with us, you know that recently we welcomed cyclist and birder Koen de Geus who is journeying across Latin America to raise money for birds. The kids accompanied Koen from Mono Bayo all the way to Ostional where they showed him the beauty and importance of mangroves, and also helped him release his first sea turtle in Ostional. The Junior Rangers had a blast during this unforgettable visit and showed their appreciation by making handmade cards for Koen!

  • In February, four communities celebrated the launch of new environmental workshops by releasing baby sea turtles in Ostional. The Junior Rangers also took field trips to Pochote where they participated in activities and games related to different themes of wildlife conservation! In total, 205 kids took part in celebrating the opening of these new workshops, filling kids with excitement for the new topics to come.

Because of you, our Junior Rangers have had an interactive and memorable last few months. Your support makes the Junior Ranger program possible. It makes a real difference in the lives of kids who will grow up to be kind and caring environmentalists.

 

In gratitude,

Sarah
