From Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation - The new school year has begun and Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation is bringing back Operation Give-A-Hoot! Operation Give-A-Hoot gives our local businesses the opportunity to sponsor teachers and/or classes for a WILD experience with Mississippi Wildlife. We invite you to give-a-hoot about our students and teachers and sponsor an education program for their class!
We currently have over 80 teachers who have applied for a sponsorship, more than half for classes of 50 students!
Two Programs Offered
Owl Pellet Program: Students dissect the pellets to learn more about the owl's diet and the ecosystems in which they live. Program include the owl pellets, tools needed for dissection, as well as an educational program with one of our education ambassadors.
- Cost for 50 Children $285
- Cost for 25 Children $225
Raising Kane Program: Students learn about Hawks in our area. They get an in-class visit from Kane the Broadwing Hawk. Students get to be interactive with the wings and feet of raptors.
