Warriors of the Wild presents free of charge to schools and organizations in Houston. Material is shown through a fun, comedic, and educational program. The preferred audience age range is 1st to 7th grade, but we can perform to other ages. The presentation is an hour long and we bring live animals.
The presentation resembles more of a performance than a long lecture. It begins with Coco the Scarlett Macaw and Jack Sparrow fishing on an island. They find out their friend, Leah the Leopard, is hurt and needs their help. So, they embark on their new journey to find her. They stop at an island to look for her, but instead learn about the phrase, "Kuakoa Wanyama" (which means to help the animals) from a puppet show song.
They also meet Leah the Leopard's friend, Sally the Squirrel, who lets them know Leah left to the next island. They arrive at the next island and find Leah sprawled on the floor because she accidentally ate a plastic bottle. After helping her get better, Leah plays a recycling game with the students in order to demonstrate the proper way to recycle. Then Sally and Leah introduce the students to their animal friends from the island. A Scarlett Macaw, Chinese Water Dragon, Bearded Dragon, Salamander, Python, and Chinchilla are brought out to show to the students. After showing the animals, the students play a guessing game involving local animals, such as, Alligators from Brazobsbend, Havelinas from Davis Mountains, Monarch Butterflies that migrate through Houston, Red Cardinals, and Dolphins from Galveston. Once the animal is guessed, we share how students can help conserve the particular animal's habitat like building a way station for Monarch Butterflies. In order to reinforce the concepts stated earlier, Barborosa the Pirate, Jack, and Coco, rap about recycling. Then we end the show by helping the students on their first conservation activity by helping them make a bird feeder by spreading peanut butter on a pinecone and then putting bird seed all over it.
