Why does environmental education matter?

Limpopo Province is rich in natural resources and cultural heritage, yet it is known to be the poorest and least educated area of South Africa, with an associated very high level of wildlife poaching. A lack of environmental education at all levels is a key cause of this. The Daktari Eco-Club, which includes activities such as litter clean-ups, educational bush-walks, day trips to learn about Eco-Tourism and wildlife  helps instill the desire to preserve the environment. They live near the Kruger National Park and various private nature reserves but without this club, they would never get the chance to visit them.

The funds raised are helping the team facilitate more school visits and empowerment opportunities for the most promising eco-club students. We have seen up to 65 students in one class at an eco-club visit and the program is becoming more and more popular with the students. Attendance is entirely optional! This valuable experience will also open up opportunities and develop interest in youth to the great job opportunities available in eco tourism.
