WorkCabin Creative has filmed and produced a new storytelling film for the Long Point Bird Observatory.
Filmed over the span of a week in various locations, this conservation film captures the incredible experiences behind this amazing workshop that opens doors for a new generation of ornithological conservationists.
The film is now being used nationally by Birds Canada and the Long Point Bird Observatory to attract and inspire high-school aged students across Canada to learn more about ornithology.
More about the Young Ornithologists’ Workshop
The workshop was named in honour of the late Doug Tarry, who had the generosity and foresight to help LPBO establish a fund that supports the workshop to this day. The workshop aims to foster the passion and knowledge of promising youth from across Canada through an intensive week of hands-on ornithological, science, and naturalist-oriented programming at LPBO. Previous participants are eligible to return to LPBO in the year following their workshop as Young Ornithologist Interns. The internship builds upon the fundamentals learned during the workshop, providing more advanced instruction and involvement in other aspects of the observatory’s research program. The workshop began as youth excursions in the late 70s, and developed into the workshop format that has been offered annually since 1991. Over 150 youth have been through the program so far. The alumni include some of Canada’s best and brightest scientists, ornithologists, and naturalists, and numerous Birds Canada staff.
