The Robinsons and their World of Animals

Tuesday, January 24 3:30 – 4:30

This wildlife program welcomes live birds of prey and reptiles. The Robinsons describe their program: "Birds of prey have their own unique adaptations for survival. Discussed will be the importance if these birds in the balance of nature, and how man has helped to restore endangered species such as the peregrine falcon. We walk through the audience with the birds so that everyone can get a close look and feel the wind from their wings. As for Reptiles, some adults are a little queasy about reptiles, but the students love them. Exposing young people to reptiles with an explanation of their importance in nature is a great way to avoid fears and misconceptions later in life. Reptiles have amazing and varied adaptations which makes for a lively and educational program."
