Art as a learning tool is one of our methodologies to encourage young people to learn about their environment. With help of @artolucion and @smithsonian we made this beautiful mural about migratory birds and the importance of conserving the environment so that these travelers reach a safe place. Always with laughter and color learning about this beautiful place.📖🎨🖍️
ird ringing in the Holy Grail of Birds! We were very excited to have Camila and Esteban from @selvaorgco to show us the magic of monitoring birds 🔎 The biologists put “mist nets” 🕸 across places where birds pass by. When the bird is “captured” by the net, an experienced scientist gently removes it from there and brings it to the study station 🔬 There, they examine all kinds of data about the bird, including gender, weight, wing length 🪶 Needless to say, our students were beyond impressed! 😱🤩
Learning about wildlife 🦥 would not be as fun if we didn't capture it as well... 🤳with cameras, of course 📸 Photography is one of our main educational pillars. It is a fantastic artistic expression 👩🎨 & an amateur wildlife monitoring tool for identification while exploring the natural world around us 🔍
Learning English the fun way 🤓 It has become the global language, used in science to tourism. We use English as a tool to enrich learning, motivate a little extra, and connect with other parts of the world. Thanks to the materials from @smithsonian on migratory birds, learning has been 2in1 victory!
Using art to promote the endemism of the place 🌻 @nandy_mondragon y Zulma, together with the students, helped us capture the endemic birds 🦜 and endemic culture of La Tagua of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta 🏔 Now, every passerby will see the emerald toucanet, and the Santa Marta Woodstar, and the face and tools of the unique indigenous cultures of this place 🛖 What else do you see on the murals? 🧐
Fly High Bird Club
Golden-Winged Warbler I Fly High Bird Club
@natarcano from SELVA told us about the Reinita Alidorada/ Golden-Winged Warbler Natalia and her team are busy monitoring the declining populations of this beautiful bird, trying to understand the problems around it and hopefully design a better environment for it to thrive Some of our students' progress on bird knowledge was significant enough that they were invited to support the monitoring efforts and even get paid for their work.
Water quality analysis is a BioBlitz, but in the water 💧 ! We bring some improvised equimpent: old nets and trays, and a phone-made microlense 🤳, and we dive into the world of water creatures 🦐 The Sierra Nevada is abundant of rivers and spaces for learning 🕵️♀️🕵️ Do you think we should do the Water Quality Analysis this year again? Why? Double tap if you agree 🤍
