This week we received an invitation to be guest speakers at an evening event at the Island Sailing Club in Cowes. Tara and I prepared a PowerPoint presentation about the Park – giving an overview of past and current projects and some of the animals that make up our very special Collection.
We were welcomed and hosted by Carol Hickmott from the Club’s Committee and her husband David. I’m pleased to say that the evening went off extremely well. We don’t often make public presentations outside of the Park so this was an exciting adventure for us! As it happens there was no need for pre-presentation nerves (even though there were about 100 guests) – because the audience (the Island Sailing Club members) were friendly, attentive and enthusiastic! There was great participation in the fun quiz that we had at the end of the evening as well as a number of interesting questions about the Park, our animals and wildlife conservation in general.
Thank you to the Island Sailing Club for a most enjoyable evening!
