As part of Redland City Council’s packed program of spring school holiday activities, IndigiScapes will host its annual Wonderful Wildlife event on Friday 29 September.
With a range of free activities for children of all ages, Redland City Acting Mayor Wendy Boglary said that Wonderful Wildlife was a celebration of the rare and endangered species which call Redlands home, with a focus on education.
“The activities and displays at the Wonderful Wildlife Day have been designed to be fun and educate youngsters about animals native to our beautiful part of the world, from the bush to the beach,” Cr Boglary said.
“The Richmond Birdwing Conservatory Network will be on hand with information about this rare and endangered butterfly found in the Redlands.
“We are fortunate to live in a region blessed with such a diverse and unique range of native species and we want our children to learn about them and appreciate the beauty of our natural environment.”
Division 7 Councillor Murray Elliott said there would be a sausage sizzle or families could pack a picnic and enjoy the school holiday fun.
“Bring the kids along to meet some native animals with Rangers Lou Lou and Al from Australian Bush Buddies and learn about native Redland animals with a bush walk and nature talk by Nigel the Ranger from Sparky Do Dah,” he said.
“The Wonderful Wildlife Day is about our children connecting with their neighbourhoods, with nature, with friends and with activity-based learning.”
Wonderful Wildlife will also feature displays by Dolphin Research Australia, Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland, Glossy Black Cockatoo Conservancy and Koala Action Group; along with family fun craft activities.
