Trip to rescue center sparks students' curiosity about wildlife and conservation
By Jessica Knierim | Development Associate
As the year came to a close, the Kouprey Express environmental education team brought 50 students on a field trip to the Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center on December 12. The primary school students from Tbong Khmum province had just learned about wildlife and habitat conservation from the KE a day prior. Visiting the rescue center gives teachers and students a hands on experience that encourages them to protect their natural heritage, wildlife and forests. The teachers were very excited to see their students to explore and expand on their new knowledge outside the classroom.
The rescue center’s guides gave the teachers and students an interactive tour and taught them about the biology and behavior of wild animals. Many students were seeing some of these animals for the very first time and it prompted students to be very excited to learn more about wildlife. The experience seemed to spark a curiosity in the students and they asked their guides countless questions about the animals they were meeting. Both the students and their teachers left the trip with a new awareness and value of wildlife and forest protection.
