Join us at SEAD Gallery and Bookshop on May 5th from 3-4 PM for “Who Hunts Hoo?”, an interactive class hosted by The Urban Interface (TUI). “Who Hunts Hoo?” will explore the fascinating predator/prey relationship with TUI’s Wildlife Ambassadors and live birds and snakes.
“Who Hunts Hoo?” is a new program for TUI. The material covered in the class contains topics and information that they have taught before, but presented in an entirely new way as it focuses on the details of predator-prey relationships in the ecosystem. The program hones in on how both types of animals rely on each other and how the balance affects our surroundings as humans. Those who attend will learn how animals hunt or evade predators, why animals need to hunt, what happens when predators or prey are removed from the environment, and how we can monitor the health of our ecosystems by observing both types of animals. Overall, students will leave with a better understanding of the complex and ever-changing relationship between nature’s predators and their prey.
The class will be structured in a loose lecture format that encourages questions and discussion. Several activities will also be implemented to add some variety to the teaching approach and enhance the interactive experience. Raptors, snakes, and pigeons will be brought into the SEAD Gallery for the class, and are safe for kids to touch.
TUI is an educational and conservation-based organization dedicated to the careful stewardship of wildlife, human development, and the vision of creating a more balanced, sustainable community between the two. Using non-releasable wildlife, they provide opportunities for individuals and communities to interact with nature around them, whether in the city, country, or somewhere in between.
