Summary

Education is limited and under-resourced in communities that have huge conservation on their doorstep. In South Africa alone townships up in the Kruger national park have never seen a lion and have no awareness of the issues the Big 5 face. Down by the Ocean communities see the sand but never stepped foot and again clueless the impact throwing a plastic bag on the floor can do to our planet and ocean. The only way to tackle this is Education & Awareness and we need it NOW.

Challenge

Conservation is a collaborative effort between communities, landowners, policymakers, educators, scientists & so on. It requires long-term investment and multi-party engagement, which is often hard to achieve when such a high percentage of the population is living in poverty and without access to any form of wildlife or conservation education. South Africa has a rich conservation population that will become increasingly threatened if we don't work together to educate and create awareness

Solution

Working with influencers and local project leaders we will take education and awareness to the next level. Engagement is key and we will do this through classroom learning combined with a practical education in the environment itself. Our engagement with these young, developing minds on topics such as ecology, pollution & poaching will help to cement the importance of preservation of their natural world. We will inspire, educate and train the change-makers of tomorrow, today. We have to act now

Long-Term Impact

The positive impact can be seen in our classes through the change of attitudes towards the environment these children live in. We hope to engage & excite as many students and teachers as possible to preserve their natural resources, ensuring survival for many generations to come. This project will empower the students & staff of these educational institutes with the resources, knowledge & language skills they need to protect and preserve our natural world & to achieve further education.
