Learning experiences are an important part of childhood, and so Sikhula Sonke includes outings as part of our Emthonjeni outreach programme curriculum. This month we were privileged to be able to visit Eagle Encounters at Spier Wine Farm, in Stellenbosch. Eagle Encounters has a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and education programme with a focus on raptors (birds of prey) and some other small animals.
Our children loved the opportunity to meet owls, eagles, hawks, a porcupine, snakes and some farm animals in person. For many of the children, this was their first introduction to wildlife.
Thanks to Eagle Encounters for this wonderful opportunity for our children. Their engaged staff explained in simple terms, flew the birds for us and offered children a chance to touch and learn about our South African wildlife. We hope that perhaps one day some passionate conservationists will emerge from this group!
