Where do birds come from? Who are their ancestors? Why do they have feathers? Where do they make their nest? What do they eat?
The answers to all of these questions are found in this little book that will help children know more about birds, especially those living in the Indian Ocean islands. Our Bird Friends – which is the third booklet of the collection ‘Naturally Curious’ – shows how important it is to know the environment that surrounds us and how to protect it.
Kids will know everything about birds, especially those living in Mauritius. Through logic games, observation games and ‘Did you know?’ trivia, learning can be fun. For example, did you know that the Mauritius kestrel (sometimes called the Mauritius falcon) had become the rarest bird on the planet in 1974? Its population consisted of only three males and one mature female! However, some kestrels were reintroduced in Bambous mountains, particularly in Vallée de Ferney, where they now thrive. The Mauritius Kestrel recovery program has been deemed the most successful bird conservation story in the world.
Our Bird Friends is available in French and English. It was made possible thanks to the help of the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation and CIEL Group – the Pink Pingeon Project national sponsor. The Pink Pigeon Project is a MWF conservation program that aims the protection of these endemic birds.
