PEAC Talk

 
Today I had the pleasure of giving an educational talk about Wedge-tailed Eagle ecology to a very bright group of Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) students at Clayton View Primary School in Koongamia. The small class was composed of students from a variety of schools in the eastern suburbs. They loved hearing about eagles and knowing that, not far away from the school, a pair of 'wedgies' were rearing a chick. We finished the day by heading outside to have a quick search for eagles, before it was time to head home. Working with and inspiring kids is a wonderfully rewarding experience and, as I'm discovering as an environmental scientist, an activity that is increasingly important for our environment.
