North Wales birds of prey project flies high on Daybreak breakfast TV

leave a comment »

One of the clients of Wales Co-operative Centre’s Social Enterprise Support Project will be joining Adrian and Christine on the Daybreak sofa this Friday 1st October (Daybreak was GMTV).

The fact that the primetime morning TV show Daybreak is interested in the Coastal Hawks Project is a great achievement, the team has already been filmed by a Daybreak ITV film crew up in North Wales, and they will also be taking part in the live breakfast show, along with their birds…the feature will hopefully be a fantastic showcase of innovative social enterprise in Wales!

The guys at Coastal Hawks Project are no strangers to media attention;  last March the documentary ‘Kez Flies Again’ was aired by BBC Wales, which followed the journeys of three unemployed young people from Rhyl as they were trained up by the social enterprise.

The Coastal Hawks Project is a social enterprise set up by the Wales Co-operative Centre that uses birds of prey as humane seagull deterrence in North Wales’ coastal towns, whilst also providing a popular tourist attraction and providing jobs for long-term unemployed people.
