Online Webinar - Ages 6+

The Loggerhead Shrike is a feisty grassland songbird that hunts like a raptor and can sometimes be seen migrating through the GTA in the spring and fall. Loggerhead Shrikes are endangered in eastern Canada and are quickly disappearing from their breeding grounds in Ontario’s grasslands. Learn what Wildlife Preservation Canada is doing to save this unique species at risk and how you can help!
