Team story

[p]We are a team of staff and volunteers from the Rutland Osprey Project who have decided to match a short section of the Osprey's amazing 3000km migration by cycling from Rutland to Dover over three days - an average of almost 70 miles a day. We will need to train hard on our strength and stamina, but we already have our motivation.[/p][p]Over the past 3 winters the Rutland Osprey Project has visited The Gambia and set up the Osprey Flyways Project, an education initiative aimed at improving awareness to school children of the wide diversity of bird life their country supports and the economic benefits that it can bring. Volunteers and staff have visited several schools to talk about the Ospreys and other migratory birds that spend winter in The Gambia.[/p][p]The Rutland Osprey Project have already raised over £12,000 through a variety of fund raising activities. These funds have been used to purchase optical and computer equipment and hire local wildlife guide Junkung Jadama to co-ordinate the project in West Africa. The work has enabled students to learn about Ospreys and other wildlife and to link West African schools with schools in the UK.[/p]
