The Commander Islands Nature Reserve announces the #WithCommanderIslands online contest. While we spend more time at home, we offer to plunge into the world of happy whales and graceful seals, charismatic arctic foxes and majestic reindeers. In order to be on the same wavelength with us, you don’t need masks, gloves, and we don’t even need to stock up on gifts to come for a visit!
We propose to parents of young active children to visit the Children's Page of the Commander Islands Nature Reserve and depart on a fascinating virtual trip.
"Bearded" tufted puffin returns with prey
For example, it will be interesting for beginner-birdwatchers to learn more about colorful friends: tufted puffin and horned puffin. You can begin your acquaintance with the ABC section, where articles and poems about them are stored. To consolidate knowledge and have a fun evening with friends, you can use the materials from the Workshop section and make your own tufted puffin of colored paper or a horned puffin mask. In Coloring Book section there are images of puffins. You can simply print the image and calm your nerves by painting unusual birds in different artistic styles, or you can use all your creativity and put outlines on watercolor paper, use the outline as a layout for burning or embroidery. Now is the time to enjoy your creativity!
And especially enthusiastic naturalists will be glad to know that the Library contains links to many books about the wonders of nature, heroes, reckless researchers and different views on the nature of the islands, including the work of May Miturich “The Commander Islands”. It was he, who noticed that the tufted puffin, on returning from the sea, looked like a bearded man.
Have you wanted to learn to play a musical instrument or sing for a long time? To create a good mood, you just need to look into the Music section and listen to songs about the two birds and if you wish, you can play them at home or sing using the backing track, because we also have notes and phonograms! On our YouTube channel you will find a sand animation movie about the tufted puffin, which will definitely inspire you to the most unexpected achievements.
