Birds: A treasure that has no price (Original: "Птиците: „Богатство без цена“/ Pticite: "Bogatstvo bez cena"

The event will take place at the Skopje Zoo, the best place for people of all ages to get acquainted with birds and our purpose to conserve them. 

A team of students and volunteers will make sure every visitor of the zoo who is interested in the event gets to do a fun and educational activity and participate in birdwatching. 

The youngest children will get to color pictures of migratory birds and will be introduced to some bird species by photos. The older children will do the previous activities, but will also participate in memory games, quizzes and the game "Birds and hunters". "Birds and hunters" is a form of tag in which some of the children are hunters and some are birds. The children will get to know the threats migratory birds face throughout fun and games. A main quiz/game/challenge will be done at the middle of the event and the winner will get a prize.

The older children/teenagers will be able to attend an educational lecture and will be asked to write a short story/essay and the best one will be featured on our blog "The birds of Skopje." The winner will also be rewarded. 

Young adults, adults and elders will be personally introduced to our cause and informed how they can personally be included in the fight against illegal killing, taking  and trading of birds. Short films will be played in the zoo's educational center.

Everyone who is interested will be able to participate in birdwatching and learn how to use binoculars and a telescope, as well as how to identify some migratory bird species.

The event will last about 4-5 hours.
