Friday 24 August 2007.
After two years of work, our successful mobile environmental classroom has completed an internal refurbishing with a new design that goes beyond the threatened parrots in Colombia theme to a great variety of threatened fauna and flora species and their ecosystems. The remodeling, implemented with the support of American Bird Conservancy , FPAA, Conservación Internacional and Loro Parque Fundación, responds to the need of adapting the bus to the reality of the many and different regions that it visits and to renew its internal panels due to their normal deterioration by their ample and permanent use.
The new interior of the Parrot Bus and children wainting to get in.
The new design includes panels on ten ecosystems: desert, subdesert, high-Andean forest, wetlands, humid forest, dry forest, mangroves and savannah, as well as shade coffee plantation, since it is so important for biodiversity.
Activities outside the Parrot Bus.
The Parrot Bus is equipped with illumination, films and sound, managed by our environmental educators, which is used in each municipality that the bus visits, together with new educative materials.
The re-furbished Parrot Bus was launched in Jardín, Antioquia. The new concept produced great interested among the community.
