Biologist for an hour - meet the Little Tern

Biologist for an hour - meet the Little Tern - Full

We invite the little ones to be biologists for an hour, helping real biologists to detect (fictious) little tern nests on the beach and to count and measure the eggs. They will also explain the main threats to this species and what they can do to help save it. This activity is part of the LIFE Barrier Islands project, approved in September 2019.

This activity is facilitated by Fábia Azevedo and Vera Marques.
