A big thank you to all of our participating classrooms that helped make our events for the first-ever World Fish Migration Day a success! We were very excited to participate in this international celebration of migratory fish, and were happy for the opportunity to bring together local communities around our fisheries work.
In Vientiane, Laos we celebrated World Fish Migration Day with an assembly at one of our participating international schools. The assembly marked the culmination of a months-long program, where students shared what they had learned about the Mekong River and its special fishes. Student presentations included a fish song, a quiz about Mekong fishes, an original illustrated storybook about the Giant Mekong Catfish, and this great video of student presentations. We were very impressed by the students’ creativity and enthusiasm, and are so proud of them!
World Fish Migration Day itself was a big international hit, with more than 270 events in 52 countries across the globe. Mark your calendars – the next World Fish Migration day will be May 21, 2016!
