Seafood Association: Free training to become a “Caribbean Bird Detective”


Everyone loves birds. They are majestic and inspiring. They are devoted parents. Their sweet songs fill the air with life. They are also a great way to learn about nature and science.

"Imagine a class that has fun and learns biology by playing a game of Bingo from the Detective Ornithologist or from a Treasure Hunt for Habitats," said Jenn Yerkes, president of the association Les Fruits de Mer. "We are delighted to make this possible by offering a free training program for teachers, educators and presenters. This program can be used indoors and outdoors and it was designed for the Caribbean. ”

Caribbean Bird Detective is a set of lessons and fun activities that use birds to teach nature and science to young people. Caribbean Bird Detective has been specially adapted to the region, so that children get to know the birds and the habitats they can see around them. The program is designed for students aged 9 to 13. It contains lessons, activities and learning games that can be done in the classroom and outdoors.

See you on September 22 and 29!

The Les Fruits de Mer association will organize free training on the Caribbean Bird Detective program with the instructor Binkie van Es. Participants will benefit from practical training and will receive materials to bring back to their class or group of young people. Each training day, 4-5 different games and activities will be taught.

"It is an amazing feeling to see children falling in love with birds and science through the Bird Detective program," says Binkie van Es, Bird Detective instructor. “Birds are the perfect gateway to a love of nature and a passion for learning. The activities are also great fun for the teachers! ”

The training will take place at the Amuseum Naturalis at The Old House on two Saturdays: September 22 and September 29, from 9 a.m. to 13 p.m. She will be bilingual in English and French. It's free and lunch will be served after each training session.
