Regents’ Year 1 Students Visit Bangphra Water Bird Sanctuary

Education in environmentalism starts at a very young age at Regents International School Pattaya. The most important part of conservation learning includes instilling virtues of compassion and respect for animals.

To do this we make field trips to different locations to understand what is going on in the natural world. One recent visit was to the Bangphra Water Bird Breeding Centre, our community partner, to find out about different animals which have been rescued from places they shouldn't be in. These animals are looked after by the devoted and caring people at Bangphra and their lives are definitely better than they were with their previous owners. Unfortunately, some of these animals may never go back to their original habitat as they were taken from the wild when they were young and have never learnt to survive in the wild. For this reason, most of the animals there need to stay in cages.

Nancy Gibson, the founder of Bangphra Waterbird Breeding Centre, was an excellent speaker and helped the Year 1 students to understand what it would be like to be trapped all day, every day. The pupils came up with a few ways to make the lives of the animals at Bangphra, a little better.

One class got to work, making toys for the wild cats, another class made rolling puzzle feeders for the deer, otters and squirrels and two classes made wooden boxes for the Slow Lorises (similar to monkeys) to sleep in. Additionally, everyone made bird feeders.

It was a lot of hard work and effort but it was exciting and gratifying to make something for the animals. Once everything was finished, the pupils went back to Bangphra and handed everything to the staff. Almost immediately the animals interacted with the objects and devices that they had created. It is a gratifying experience to watch the animals enjoy themselves.

Year 1 have learnt that one act of kindness has the capacity to change many things. In our case, it's made a positive impact on the lives of some animals.
