A massive thank you to the National Gamekeepers Organisation Educational Trust for their kind donation of taxidermy for all the Moorland groups to utilise.
NYMMO is currently one of six moorland groups in England, if you haven’t already checked out the others then please do so and show your support for all the good work that we are doing. Search for Forest of Bowland, Nidderdale, North Pennines, Peak District or Yorkshire Dales Moorland Groups to find much more interesting facts and events.
Taxidermy is a vital education tool used by all the Moorland Group, having a real-life bird or animal in front of you makes so much more of a lasting memory than a photo. It gives an accurate size and colour of a species and provides the appearance of what it would look like in the wild.
The feedback we have received from the teachers who have been involved in the schools education days is that our taxidermy birds are one of the things that the children talked about most after their visits.
