The Wonder of Wildlife in Gloucestershire
'Wildlife Wonder Gloucestershire' is a unique view of the County through the eyes of local school children and opens on the 29th September.
Wildlife Wonder Gloucestershire is a unique and revealing portrait of the county’s natural diversity, as seen through the eyes of local primary school children.
Working with professional wildlife photographer, Iain Green, more than a thousand pupils from 30 schools have explored and photographed the nature on their doorstep during the past year.
Taking a wildlife safari in school grounds or beyond the gates to a nearby wildlife hotspot, children have studied spectacular snowdrops, experienced the awe and seasonal wonder of trees, discovered rhino beetles, rare butterflies, water voles and even adders! All photographs on display in the exhibition were taken by pupils.
TV may take us to the Amazon, but young people are our guides to the wildlife wonders of Gloucestershire. As well as producing a stunning photographic study, the children have thoroughly engaged with the nature on their doorstep and become conservation champions.
The 'Wildlife Wonder Gloucestershire' exhibition is open to all (free admission), open 11am-5pm, 29th September to 2nd October 2016.
Pupil representatives from participating schools will also join together at a special exhibition preview and Eco-Summit – to share their experiences, images, learning and hopes for the future.
A Private View for invited guests and Press will take place on Wednesday 28th Sept 4pm - 6.30pm. Contact Iain for more details.
