Summary

The Kouprey Express is an environmental education team that travels Cambodia and raises awareness about wildlife conservation and habitat preservation using PSAs, billboards, and a mobile education component that targets communities and students. By engaging every level of society, Wildlife Alliance hopes to not only reduce the demand for the illegal wildlife trade, but also empower communities to protect their natural resources.

Challenge

In Cambodia, the adult literacy rate is only around 78 percent and women in particular are unlikely to receive a formal education. Lack of resources means that public environmental education and outreach programs to reach children and communities are often neglected. As Cambodia's population grows, pressure on the country's limited resources will continue to grow, and it is vital we empower these communities with the knowledge they need to protect their environment.

Solution

The Kouprey Express travels to various rural and urban areas to raise awareness among communities about wildlife laws, forest conservation, environmental health issues, waste management, pollution, and climate change. It also trains and provides school supplies to teachers, and takes students on educational field trips. Through fun activities they works to inspire communities and young people to make a difference for animals and nature.

Long-Term Impact

Since the Kouprey Express began, the team has brought environmental education and training to 44,765 children and 469 teachers in 197 schools and increased environmental awareness among 126,638 community members through Community Night Shows. Their efforts are effecting positive change in attitudes toward wildlife and habitat - one child, one animal, one tree at a time - for Cambodia's forests and wildlife.
