Are you an educator who is looking for a different approach to your biology or environmental science curriculum? Invite our Flying Team for a visit!
Our programs are created using science-based knowledge and can be designed to your curriculum requirements. All programs are conducted by our Executive Director, Michele Losee, a raptor ecologist and educator.
Michele holds a current fingerprint clearance card
All programs finish with at least one live raptor on the glove and an informal Q&A session.
Below are just examples of programs that we offer so, if you have something really unique; we can make a teaching moment out of any ideas! In addition, all programs can be modified for university or adult level programs.
RAPTOR BIOLOGY – This program explores raptor anatomy using replica skeletal parts and photographs of different species to show the variances among raptor species based on their survival strategies used in the wild. Dissecting and examining feathers and raptor pellets is always a favorite way to demonstrate the unique biology of raptors.
RAPTORS AND PEOPLE – This program focuses on how humans impact raptors and discussing ways the students can help raptors in their everyday lives is an excellent way to develop good environmental stewardship.
WHERE RAPTORS LIVE – This program focuses on where raptors live and why all over the world. Topics covered are habitat characteristics and prey choices as well as hunting style used by various species based on prey, land cover and flight anatomy.
