Hear the story of Costa Rica’s endangered spider monkeys and build model wildlife bridges to keep them safe from predators and human settlements. Be enthralled by children’s storyteller Helen Tozer and rainforest ecologist Jenna Lawson at this family workshop combining storytelling, board game fun, model making and immersive rainforest soundtracks.  

Together they will discuss the threats posed by deforestation, and our role in combating it, as well as how wildlife corridors can help Jenna’s spider monkey survive in a precious but endangered ecosystem they contribute so much to.  

Advance tickets are now sold out but there will be drop-in spaces available on the day.
