Dancing Puffins Flash Mob – Be Involved

  

 

We would like to invite you and the children in your school to help celebrate the return of the puffins to the Firth of Forth islands and our 12th birthday – it would be fantastic to have you involved!

 On Saturday 19 May at 11:00 in a city centre location in Edinburgh (to be confirmed) we would like to have a big group of people dancing to celebrate the return on the puffins – as a flash mob.  For many years the number of puffins was in decline, but thanks to work undertaken by the Scottish Seabird Centre’s SOS Puffin campaign the numbers are rising again.

 We would love to have you on board! For more information about SOS Puffin and the work undertaken by the Scottish Seabird Centre please visit http://www.seabird.org/ Facebook.com/ScottishSeabirdCentre and Twitter @SeabirdCentre

Please help us celebrate by spreading the word and joining in the fun!
