We received some news from Helsinki zoo where the Finnish visitors can learn about the Songbird crisis via many activities.
Several schools took part in a bird-theme day earlier this year.
The teenagers created material for the social media – the goal being an action poster – cartoons and short theater plays to tell their schoolmates about the need to protect songbirds in Asia.
In addition, a singing contest of songbirds’ vocalizations was organized. The winner was the Blackbird, a local species.
As we all love hearing these feathery animals, Helsinki zoo had the great idea to display a bird song automate during Spring. In exchange of a coin, visitors could listen to their favorite songbird vocalization!
Visit the audio Resource page to find out which one is your favorite?!
Finally, during a weekend, a lottery with a spinning wheel was organized and hosted by a giant bird of an unknown species!
Congratulations for the great ideas and thank you for your involvement!
