What can we do to protect wildlife at WWT Llanelli Wetland Centre

Written by: Elmtree Press

This autumn is all about birds, flight and migration, as thousands of ducks and waders fly to the centre from the arctic to spend the winter in Wales. We will be launching our brand new session “What can we do to protect wildlife?” this term, where young learners take on the role of conservationists conducting research to help us conserve threatened species of birds. You can also investigate migration in more detail in “How can we help migratory birds?”, and get hands-on exploring different parts of birds’ bodies to find out how they are adapted for flight in “How do birds fly?”.

 

There’s also still chance to come pond dipping until October half term. Our “How do animals live in a pond?” session is particularly suitable for classes covering “The Big Dip”.

 

We are now also taking bookings for our sensory wetland Santa experience for schools, including a seasonal story about animal sounds, hand-feeding ducks, geese and swans with Santa, a special Christmas craft to take home, and a close encounter with our beautiful white snow geese, exploring how they live in their arctic homes. Children will then meet Santa again to share their experiences and sing songs at the end of the morning. This session lasts around 1.5 - 2 hours and is suitable for nursery to year 2 children, and is extremely popular so make sure you book early to get your preferred date!
