All Aboard the Wild About Scotland Bus

P6 and P7 pupils from Sciennes and P7 pupils from Tollcross have been very fortunate to be given the chance to take part in engaging workshops led by Education Officers Lindsay and Jamie from Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) on Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th February in their ‘Wild About Scotland’ double decker outreach bus, sponsored by Clydesdale Bank. Pupils learned about the habitats and conservation of beavers and wildcats in particular.

The Wild about Scotland bus is travelling the length and breadth of Scottish communities engaging children with Scotland’s natural habitats and native species. The main objective is to provide fun, practical lessons that connect children to the nature in their own backyard with a view to creating a lifelong appreciation and respect for Scotland’s wildlife and the importance it plays in wider conservation issues affecting not just Scotland but our planet overall.

It was wonderful to have the Wild About Scotland bus parked up in  our neck of the woods and we thoroughly enjoyed the workshops. Jamie and Lindsay were very complimentary about the enthusiasm and manners of the pupils and we in turn  are grateful to them for their time and energy. And safe journey onwards, Dave the Driver, as you make your way to Oxgangs Primary and then Perth. Come back soon, RZSS!
