New schools join The Bowdleflodes
Bowdleflode News No. 21 – February 2020
Great Wildlife News!
BIG news in the world of Conservation this week. Thanks to The Aspinall Foundation, Saba & Nairo – two cheetahs, born in the UK, are to be moved from Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, to their ancestral home of the South
African wilds. This truly groundbreaking project is the first time a captive-born cheetah has left the UK for rewilding in Africa.
More new schools join the Bowdleflodes
Last month we welcomed three more UK schools who will take part in our project – Easebourne Primary (West Sussex), Hollycombe Primary (Hampshire) and Galleywall Primary (London). We look forward to working with them closely this year as we continue to develop our offering and eagerly anticipate the new additions to our safari park!
Bowdleflode of the Month
This month we give a special mention to SPIDERBUG, created by Olivia from Crofton Anne Dale Junior School
Spiderbug has lady bug wings and a spider body and colour. They eat leaves and flowers because it is good for their diet. They live in the ground making a tunnel to their home. Spiderbugs are considered to be a bit mean as
they bite and eat other insects if they get too close!
The Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project has had the pleasure of partnering with A New Direction joining them at their cultural networking events over the last few months. This has allowed us to directly
connect with teachers leading art and cultural subjects across London and giving them a means to raise awareness of the plight of endangered species.
Following on from the Cultural Connections event at Wembley Park in January, Bowdleflodes is celebrating Brent’s year as the London Borough of Culture, by offering a special value price for our project to all Brent schools and educational settings throughout 2020. Instead of our usual price of £2.99 per child, we are able to offer the Wildlife Project at a reduced price of 99p per child throughout 2020.
The Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project…
is proud to be supporting schools and education settings on their Artsmark journey, inspiring children and young people to create, experience, and participate in great arts and culture.
