Traditional Embera and Wounaan Children Stories Contest
José de Jesús Vargas González — in Harpy Eagle Conservation and Research    Share
Another day on Harpy Eagle conservation concluded last April, as we finally awarded the winners of the Embera and Wounaan Children Story Contest. This award ceremony is somehow different, and it was not limited to choosing just one winner.

We worked hard throughout the day on our conservation manual titled “My Nature Journal,” written by Marta Curti. Along with our parabiologists, the award winners joined us to explore the many adventures that biologist often encounter in the natural world. The manual offered each child the possibility to explore his/her creativity and knowledge. It was amazingly amusing and gratifying to watch the children enjoy themselves with the manual’s activities. Of course, parents were there as well to enjoy the experience with their children.

After a long day in the field, we held an award ceremony with the members of “La India,” our host community for the event. During the ceremony, parents told the audience the winning stories, highlighting the importance of protecting and preserving Harpy Eagles and other endangered raptors. Right after that, we proceeded to award the winning contestants.

Our ceremony ended with the screening of a movie, and with the promise of making the publication of winning stories a reality.
