Over the long weekend, BDEC organised a ‘Wildlife Theme’ for the City of Busselton’s Freaky Friday event at Geographe Leisure Centre. Freaky Friday is a monthly pool party for kids aged 10 – 13 with plenty of fun-filled games, prizes, music and water inflatables.
Our wildlife theme helped to inspire and educate the children on native fauna in the area and they were able to interact with two Pythons, two Bobtails and a Western Ringtail Possum. Approximately 40 children took part in BDEC’s quiz, learning to distinguish native wildlife from feral animals, their habitats and diets and the children were encouraged to talk about their experiences with wildlife.
A Possum mascot provided additional fun and entertainment to the pool party.
Special thanks to Silke Rothkamm, Angela Griffin, Uta Wicke, Jess Berry and Nora Stelter for your great work running the event.
