Albany -- Wednesday some South Georgia children came face to face with some of the most deadly predators known to man. Students at Deerfield Windsor watched a unique animal presentation of birds of prey and snakes.

The program, sponsored by the Flint River Water and Conversation District, teaches young Georgians about wildlife and the importance of habitat conservation. "I learned that you should not be afraid of snakes because they don't go very fast and they don't hear you," says 3rd grader Samuel Shellhaas.

Master Falconer Steven Hein showed students both native and foreign birds of prey and reptiles. Hein says educating kids now will help them grasp the importance of preserving wildlife.
