Today Jaclyn and ‘Seabird Task Force Ambassador’ Sarah delivered an educational session to St Agnes School. The children found out where Manx shearwaters are spending their Christmas - the water’s off Southern Argentina.

The children spent the morning learning how the Argentinean school children at a coastal school in Pueblo Madryn spend their days at school, celebrate their Christmas, and wait until January 7th to open their presents! We created a wonderful Christmas card to wish thre school Feliz Navidad! (Merry Christmas in Spanish)and send Christmas wishes to the Manx shearwaters as they winter in their waters.

Feliz Navidad Manx Shearwaters, see you in March 2014!
