Operation: Broken Feather Exhibition

The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) is bringing their ‘Operation Broken Feather’ exhibition to Glasgow Science Centre from 29 May until 21 July

This interactive exhibition, designed by high school students across Scotland, shines a light on the plight of a small migratory bird to Scotland and invites visitors to help ‘Agent Corncrake’ crack the ‘Corncrake Conservation Code’.

Special Agent Corncrake has been compiling an urgent report into just who can save the corncrake. Unfortunately, the return flight from her migration was a dangerous road and she had to take precautions to make sure the report didn’t fall into the wrong hands.

She has now gone into hiding and need your help to piece together the missing parts of her report and discover who can save our species!
