Meet a diversity of live “Alien Invaders!” Our “aliens” are animals that were once family pets, but somehow were released into the wild. With this program, we will learn about some of the challenges that these aliens face in foreign lands, as well as the problems they create. Find out how Tuck, a Monk parakeet, a feathered friend who should live in Brazil, came to live wild in Connecticut. Discover how Cane Toads made their way into the sugar cane fields of Florida and how Rain, a Green Iguana came to be high in a tree in Bridgeport, Connecticut! Finally, we’ll uncover how a turtle called a “Red-eared slider” made it all the way from the southern U.S. to a pond in Greenwich, CT.
