The tiny Red Knot has captured the hearts of many nature lovers. It is most famous for its amazing 30,000 kilometers (or more than 18,000 miles) annual migration, but there are many more reasons to love a Red Knot.
We will follow the story of ‘Rufus the Red Knot’ from the children’s comic “A year in the life of a Red Knot”, with one of the authors reading the story. At each of Rufus’s stops we will meet the people and see the places of his journey. After the story and presentations there will be a Q&A Session to discuss red knot migration and conservation.
