The Raptor and Wildlife Refuge of Tasmania’s Educational Display at the Channel Heritage Centre
For the first time, those who have never visited the Raptor Refuge will have an opportunity to learn about the important work the Refuge does to protect Tasmania’s raptors. Included in the educational display will be information about the rehabilitation aviaries and unique Education Centre.
Photographs and display cases of sensitively preserved raptors, their talons, tails, legs and wings, will provide a close-up view to visitors.
The aim of the display is to draw attention to the Refuge and to encourage the public and more school groups to visit the facilities. Special workshops, tours and educational presentations are now available by booking online at www.raptorrefuge.com.au.
Situated in Kettering, the Raptor Refuge consists of large flight aviaries and slatted aviaries designed to house injured raptors from all over Tasmania. The Education Centre on site is full of interesting raptor-related items and provides a venue for school groups and others to learn about raptors, to ensure their ongoing survival.
The display will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm daily from June 2-28, 2015 at the Channel Heritage Centre, 1755 Channel Highway, Margate. Entry is free and donations are welcome.
