First Annual Harpy Eagle Day Celebration a Resounding Success!
Marta Curti— 13 April 2005 — in Neotropical Environmental Education Program Share
All in all, the event was more successful than we could have imagined. Over 18 different conservation, artisan, and humanitarian organizations from Panama contributed to the event by having stands, displays, and materials available to the public. Some of the contributing organizations included the Embera, EcoPolice, Ministry of Education, Mission: Harpy Eagle, Piggy Press Books, The Peace Corps, Explora, Asociación Amigos del Bosque, Panama Canal Authority, American Field Service, Panama Verde, Patronato: Friends of the Harpy Eagle, and Metropolitan Park.
The day’s events included face painting, obstacle courses, sack races and other games, a raffle, and, the most popular event, the flying of our education Harpy Eagle. We also hosted a raptor costume contest and parade for children and adults. Three finalists were chosen from each age category and winners were awarded Peregrine Fund t-shirts and hats along with other great prizes donated from Dunkin’ Donuts, Exedra Books, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, and Space Play World. Ancon Expeditions also donated prizes for a Raptor Quiz contest.
