Despite the multitude of summer camp options open for kids, finding something close to home but far enough from the mundane is difficult. Madras Crocodile Bank Trust, fondly referred to as Croc Bank, has some interesting activities planned for young aspiring
naturalists this summer. The in–house herpetology experts, reptiles themselves and the croc bank environ are used to the fullest to sensitize the young minds on issues relat...ed to ecosystems and reptile conservation.
The two-day long summer camps offer an opportunity for youngsters to interact with herpetology experts, gain theoretical and practical know-how of the reptile world and additionally, enjoy the charms of reptiles in their slightly more active, nocturnal avatar.
Be it trekking through the scrub jungle with the Irulas looking for snakes or visiting the nearby flying fox colony or being launched into the world of traditional medicines, there is never a dull moment for enthusiasts. Also, there are the certificates and
goodies to take home.
For those of you, who feel that these camps are a great way for your kids to spend their summer, please contact Gayathri Selvaraj, Education Officer, Madras Crocodile Bank.
