20130730bumerang srece7On Tuesday, 30th July 2013, we had a special visit in centre Aqualutra in Križevci, Goričko. Next door, in sport centre Križevci, children have a summer camp Boomerang of happiness. Children came to visit in two groups. During the visit they met otter, their mysterious neighbour. With the help of mounted animals children met otter's relatives, they touched otter's fur, counted fingers on otter's paw ... for the end we visited nearby stream with the yougest children. There children could catch and see smaller freshwater inhabitants. Lovely visit, filled with infant curiosity. Insight in our day is available in the gallery.
