Rumble in the Jungle and Archery Shoot Out for Kids at the International Wildlife Museum
The International Wildlife Museum hosted two events this January – Rumble in the Jungle, a Jumangi-inspired event and an Archery Shoot Out for Kids where they learned safety and shooting techniques.
196 people attended Rumble in the Jungle and participated in a riddle scavenger hunt, played games and made jungle and safari themed crafts. The museum was decorated to enhance their experience. Southern Arizona Reptile Rescue was on site with 20 different lizards, snakes and turtles that the people could hold and touch.
55 people attended the Archery Shootout and for many, it was their first time trying archery. Kids and their parents are taught range safety and how to shoot properly. After learning the basic skills, they can shoot at Olympic-style targets, 3D targets and balloons. It was a good time had by all and many ask when the next archery day will be, where can they go to buy a bow and where ranges are in Tucson. We are excited to be able to introduce them to the lifelong sport of archery and hopefully they will continue the journey to becoming future hunters and conservationists.
The International Wildlife Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona is excited to bring sustainable-use conservation messages to over 50,000 visitors each year with nearly half of them school-aged children. Visitors and campers gain an awareness and understanding about how SCIF contributes to wildlife conservation around the world and how these conservation achievements would not be possible without the contribution of hunters.
