All Yr8 enjoyed the ‘Amazing Animal Roadshow’ from Mike Gibb @ ‘World of Owls, Randalstown Forest. Worldwide conservation of owls was considered alongside opportunities to get up close to his collection of invertebrates including the Madagascan Hissing cockroaches! Click HERE for more photos…. And click the web link to explore further the conservation undertaken by this important charitable organisation: http://www.worldofowls.com/”
Yr8 recently had the opportunity to make site visits to Invista ( Lycra production), Lough’s agency, Prehen and had a visit from the Derry City Councils’s Biodiversity Officer. All these experiences enabled Yr8 to relate Science to careers directly linked to the local area and also raised important environmental considerations linked to the maintenance of our newly acquired honey beehive population.
